Lately I’ve been wrestling with the familiar yet jolting feeling of uncertainty. I received all the best news from graduate school admissions and I’m slowly building a home here in the city. At the same time, everything is up in the air, and I don’t really have any answers. But I think everyone feels this way from time to time. And it’s these moments that bring me to write in my journal, drink tea with old friends, spend hours in the kitchen baking something savory, and dream of new possibilities.
“Uncertainty and mystery are energies of life. Don’t let them scare you unduly, for they keep boredom at bay and spark creativity.” – A quote by R. I. Fitzhenry
Ran Tea House is a lovely tea shop and experimental venue in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. I dropped in after pottery class last week. With high ceilings, potted plants, rocking chairs, and plenty of light, it’s a perfect place to relax with a cup of hot tea.
