Coming home to the San Francisco Botanical Garden.
In 2012 I participated in some career coaching over the course of a few weeks. One of the outcomes was a self made list of qualities to refer to any time I needed a self esteem boost. It was an excellent experience.
Sitting in the park during a few days of curiously un-freezing weather just after Christmas. We had the gift of sun too.

This is Tea is an exhibition that was on display in Berlin from May 30 to June 14, 2015.
It was composed of three parts:
Tea: A large amount of used, dried tea leaves. All types, all origins. Remarkable ranges of color come through with such a large amount of tea leaves are mixed togethger. Light and dark browns, yellows, greens, reds. All of this tea was consumed at home in the last 14 months. The total weight is 3 kilograms.
Leaf Prints: Before these leaves were dried, they were pressed onto paper to make unique prints. Despite the color categories of tea (white, green, black) the prints show a deep range of browns and yellows, all the output of every type of tea consumed.
Photographs Ten photographs of tea cups again showcase this idea of range of color. Green tea can range from a rich, grassy color, to a pale yellow. Black teas can be orange, red, and brown.
Although This is Tea has ended, the Leaf Prints and Photographs are still on display, available for viewing by appointment.
