I have a 9 x 7 inches (approx.23 x 18 cm) watercolor/ fineliner page today.

The poem is written on used teabagpaper with typewriter:

Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the world earth revolves -
slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future. Live the actual moment.
~ Thich Nhat Hanh

It's meant for Jo's POETRY IN MOTION theme over at  
Art Journal Journey and also for  T Stands for Tuesday where I’m pleased
 to join in the fun with the T Gang! 

Eine Seite auf Aquarellpapier - Wasserfarben und Fineliner - Format 23 x 28 cm
verlinkt zu den im obigen Text genannten Challenges.

Text mit Schreibmaschine auf gebrauchtem Teebeutelpapier geschrieben:
"Trinke Deinen Tee langsam und voller Achtung, als wäre dies die Achse um die sich die Erde dreht- langsam, gleichmäßig und ohne einer Zukunft entgegenzueilen. Lebe den konkreten Augenblick."
~Thich Nhat Hanh


  1. Wonderful page, happy T Day tomorrow!

  2. Beautiful artwork Susi and the poem is so calming and serene. Your painting just fits the words

    Have a Happy T Day tomorrow

    Love Chrissie xx

    Wishing you a great week ahead.

  4. Liebe Susi,
    Deine Teekanne finde ich super gelungen und sie passt

    Ich versuche immer den "Augenblick" zu leben, es macht
    vieles leichter
    Einen stressarmen Wochenbeginn.

  7. Das sieht nach rotem Früchtetee aus, lecker und wieder einfach famos zu Papier gebracht, liebe Susi! LG Ulrike

  8. Absolutely love this page - the gorgeous colours inside the teapot as the flavour swirls from the tea leaves into the water, and so beautiful to type the quote on a used teabag.

  9. Like your quote suggests, it's important to savour every moment of life and of course tea which is my favourite drink of the day ... lol 😉 ... Happy T Day! Your drawing is amazing and I love the simplicity and peacefulness of this piece! The way you have painted and blended the colours adds such beautiful detail and typing the quote onto the teabag paper is perfect! Thanks for another fantastic page for Art Journal Jounrey and wishing you a happy new week dear Susi! J 😊

  10. I am going to think of this quote when I sip my iced tea today. I love tea related items and I love your page Susi. You are so good not coloring everything in and leaving the white space so the color really pops. Like in your teapot and cup. :) Hope you enjoyed your weekend and happy new week. Hugs-Erika

  11. Oh wow! I love this quote and painting! Perfect words for a Monday.

  12. Love your card, Susi, and the beautiful poem! Great image and watercolours! Have a great week, my friend.

  13. Das ist wieder so wunderbar, diese hübsche Teekanne lächelt mich an und passt total zu dem Zitat. all deine Bilder sind so wunderschön, die Farben, die ganze Bildaufteilung ist stimmig. Alles kleine einzigartige Kunstwerke.
    Ganz liebe Grüße susa

  15. Oh My Susi! This really is beautiful! Love how you used the tea bag papers!Happy T Day! Hugs, Chrisx

  16. Oh Susi, I was not only impressed with the beautiful drawing, I was also impressed that you were able to type on a tea bag. Wish I owned a typewriter for that very reason. This was a beautiful AJJ and T Stands for Tuesday entry. Thanks beyond belief for sharing it with us.

  17. Was man mit Tee alles machen kann. Echt cool! Tolle Seite Susi.

    LG Gaby

  18. Typing on a tea bag? Boy you have so much talent and fun, loving this xxx

  19. It's always teatime... und wirklich gelungen, die Zeichnung sowohl als auch das Gedicht.
    Mit sonnigen Grüßen, Heidrun

  20. dear Susi this is such a beautiful painting and poem, and I love that you typed it onto a teabag-how clever!! Happy T day!

  21. I keep looking at this and finding things I like. First there is the quote which is perfect. Then the color - just bold enough but not too bold. All connected by the loose style drawing. Fantastic piece.

  22. susi i 'am going to apply that quote while drinking my coffee this morning.. however did you manage to type on tea bags?? Happy T day! Hugs! deb

  23. It is a gorgeous page Susi a wonderful kettle and cup with a super quote. I have added the quote to my quotes book, I hope you don't mind.
    Happy T day.

  26. Fabulous line drawing of the pot and cup, Susi! It's a beautiful page overall, but I love how you can represent something with so few lines. Simply beautiful <3

  27. I like the quote "Drink your tea slowly and reverently". I most often drink mine while I'm doing something else, so I'm not even really paying attention to it. This is a good reminder for me. Thx :) Happy T Tuesday
