Am watching Confessions of a Dangerous Mind and remembering the Gong Show.
What used to be so wild and unpredictable seems so tame in comparison with today. I had a professor in school who used to say that people haven't really changed since the time of Chaucer. We think that our technology has advanced us, but ultimately we're organically the same animal that we've been for a long, long time.
Today's Gong Show is exponentially more wild on Youtube.
Where does tea fit into all of this? It just seems to improve what already was. I was always looking for a drink that'd both calm me and enliven me. When I finish a delicious pot of tea and immediately brew another, it's never going to send my heart-rate over the edge like other beverages.
So the world swirls round. Television and now the internet continue to show us the limitless variety of creatures we really are. And I'm brewing yet another infusion of Milky Oolong. All is right with the world.
