The castle walls are the strongest thing for miles around, yet when Amara looks carefully she notices the stones, each one unique from the other. 

From a distance it is uniform grey, from up close it is a mosaic of humble rocks, each of them nobody would think anything of, were they loose by the roadside. 

But together they are a castle, the crown of the landscape and protector of ancient peoples.

With the tea, I am with my grandmother once more, in her sunroom watching the boats sail onward.The echoes of summer days remain as flowers immune to winter chills.

The tea in itself is a gentle reminder of summers that are much older than I am.

The authentic Ayurveda she calls it, made specially for the mind, body and soul. 

The mind, body and soul. I always wondered.
