Apparition in a Teacup

April 10, 2004

[dried tea forming the letter R]The picture on the left is a photo I took (several weeks ago) of the bottom of an empty mug of tea left overnight. The remaining tea dried to form this pattern. What does it mean? I think it is a message from God, a message for our time. And the message is: talk like a pirate.

(We’re going on vacation tomorrow for a week. Now that I’m trying to post regularly again, I thought I should let you know. Enjoy the blogs on the right, and I’ll see you when we get back.)

As an American missionary kid who grew up in Japan, I'm a child of two cultures, while not fully belonging to either. This gives me a sightly different view of the world.
