A Storm is Brewing: Tempest in a Teapot

Your spiritual samovar may be ornate or utilitarian, but the fuel you choose to burn determines whether your temporal teapot will pump a steady stream of strong, dark zavarka, or merely pass the bitterest green bile of jealousy through its mindless vein.

With what will you fill your pipe? Crumble a chunk of confidence and serve with a twist of irony? Shred the leaves of regret and season with remorse? Or will you opt for the coals of courage to heat the blend of passion and potential brewing within?

Only you can truly master the nuances of self-actualization, change its taste and obey your inner barista.
