At Home with Simple Pleasures

“I say let the world go to hell, but I should always have my tea.”
― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Notes from Underground

IN A WORLD GONE MAD …

…we still have civilities: morning coffee, afternoon tea and poetry.

Welcome to  a  celebration of three simple pleasures featured here along with book reviews, author interviews, tasty recipes and photographs of gardens, trees, flowers and the occasional winged creature. My hope is that when you visit Coffee, Tea and Poetry, you’ll remember to take a breath, slow down and just be. Make a cup of coffee or tea and settle in. Take a step away from news, chores, duties and the often devastating disruptions of the world. 

Thank you for your visit. I hope you’ll come often and  I wish for you the very best in life, the courage to meet its challenges and the wisdom to recognize its gifts, even when they come in disguise  Jamie Dedes, Poet, Writer, Blogger
