Many of the loveliest people I know have strong elements of wabi-sabi in their persons and their personas: not the sleek perfection of glossy porcelain, but evidence of life and living that leaves traces in appearance and habits, with a fundamental honesty and therefore beauty shining through it all.

Screen name is a double throw-back to the band Rush. Alex Lifeson's (the guitarist) nickname is Lerxst. 2112 (2112 Overture) is one of my favourites of theirs. 2112 is oft times played in sequence with Temples of Syrinx.

These gems are oft lost to their bigger hits. Namely Freewill, Tom Sawyer, Limelight, etc.. etc...

Last "tea" I had was an Earl Grey while waiting for breakfast at the Ramada Inn in NY, and some peppermint stuff at my husband's parents house before we left for NY.

"Sherubtse" is a place where I spent a few enjoyable years back in the 80's. Thought it would make an interesting and catchy screen name / user name.

Going through the OTTI 15 teas for the past few days. Very nice indeed!

Best wishes,

I've been using this handle since I had to come up with a screen name for aim about ten years ago. :D Screen names were "supposed" to have numbers after them back then, and Hebrews 13:5 is my favorite verse, hence the "135".

I tried a blend that included lapsang souchong for the first time yesterday. At first I was really intimidated by the aroma of the leaves, but I actually quite enjoyed it. 8)

Kathy Marie is my name. And I'm re-using some White Peony leaves refrigerated overnight after one steep. Last night my sister and I had a "Skype tea tasting" and we chose that tea.

It was fun! Well, except for cracking my teacup... We didn't brew it correctly at first, neither of us could taste anything (we followed directions though! ???) so we added more tea and it turned out flower-y.

And my apologies if I've horrified someone to the bone!!

Rush is awesome!

As for my username it is a nickname derived from parts of my first and last names.

My name is Ricardo Caicedo, when I joined twitter the only combination that I could find was riccaicedo.

It's also the same for steepster and other tea forums.

My name is RabbitsIB translated to Rabbits In Black. I got the name from having rabbits as a child and one of them was black the other black and white so I started using this name rabbits in black in the early 90's on the net.
