greek mountain tea

for me is one or two cups of coffee in the morning
but the rest of the day, tea!
all kinds: black, herbal, green, rooibos
a co-worker introduced me a couple of days ago
to an unknown tea for me, the Greek Mountain tea

below from different web-sites
interesting facts on it
it tastes fresh and herb-like
and it seems to be very good for you
here here

Mountain Tea is enormously popular in Greece, and used most often in winter when levels of physical activity decrease and colds, aches, and pains increase. It is said to have a positive effect on almost anything that ails but, most notably, it is used for colds, respiratory problems, digestion, the immune system, mild anxiety, and as an anti-oxidant. It is also used as an anti-inflammatory and to reduce fever.

my door and the daylight savings

a soft knocking
on the door
this morning
a mild stroke, again
since it's almost melodic

intrigued opened it
was the sunlight

my door, this weekend

today after work
i walked to the beach
to ocean beach, to watch the sunset
since today we had the daylight savings
the beach was more crowded than usual
many sandiegans were celebrating that
being our clocks one hour fast
we can catch the sunset
after a day of working at the office

i was able to catch a very little of it...
a last wedge of señor Sol
behind the sea
like a shy man
tired after a whole day of work
he was going home
to rest and from us

i took a whole roll of film
have to wait for the developing (sigh)
