Home is a Cup of Tea 

“Home is the aggregate of our journeys, a collection of people and places, memories and experiences, each home building on the last.

It’s the same beauty found in icicles, honeycombs and pearls.

But this doesn’t happen overnight — like José himself said, in our equation for home, and like Zyah and I would always wait, letting our chai steep in the yurt.

Just like a cup of tea, home takes time.”

—Rardon, Candace Rose. “Home is a Cup of Tea.” Longreads.com. July 2017.
