I stumped! I’m actually stumped! I’ve reached a dead end, and have no thoughts from Dr. Joe. Each idea I’ve tried to exploit has met the same fate…delete. Penelope’s is closed so there will be no inspiration from a steamy chai latte; and, Jennifer Holiday was not at Starbucks so there would be no special black tea just for me. I’ve been writing forever and frankly this has never happened before. I’ve always been able to craft a few thoughts many of which were absolutely nonsensical.

Penelope's was closed so I headed to Starbucks for a cup of black tea. Barb and the kids who work there are wonderful; they make you feel like you're a member of their family. I was sipping tea and re-reading, "With the old Breed," by Eugene Sledge, an historical account of life and death struggles of the 5th Marines in the Pacific. Waiting for further direction from my wife Kaitzer regarding afternoon pickups, I was wondering whether I was supposed take the girls to dance, violin, swimming, or play dates.

About 5,000 years ago, Chinese Emperor Shen Nung discovered that boiling water made it safe to drink. A plant called Camellia sinensis had leaves that fell into his boiling water. From that incident, different teas were discovered: Black, Oolong, White, and Puerh. There are now herbal teas and flavored teas. Sri Lanka and India produce ½ of the world?s production of tea. Black tea is grown in S. Carolina and Hawaii. In the 1600s tea rituals started; in the 1800s England had her first tea ceremonies.

Penelope's was closed, and since I had a few hours to kill, I headed to Starbucks to have a spot of tea and do some writing on my Great American Novel. After two years of watching my ears bleed, I haven't gotten too far. But that's another story for another day. The weather was dismal so I sat outside to feel the cold drizzle. As I pecked away trying to develop the core of my main character this guy walks up to me and asks, "Are you Dr. Joe?" Yep, I'm guilty, I replied. "Dr. Joe, I read you every week in the Valley Sun."
