about this blog
Why chai at six? Because growing up, my family and I would have chai every evening. Those moments of my youth are among my most favorite memories.

Who am I? A twentysomething working fulltime in Knoxville, Tenn.

    chai at six
    This weekend, unlike many, was more physically strenuous. I went bike riding at Cades Cove with a friend from work. We rode 11 miles on the Scenic Loop. I have to admit that I stopped a couple of times and walked up a few hills. But in my defense, I went through 5-1/2+ miles without stopping. Only at the second half did I falter and did my lack of shape give up on me.

    Bike riding was so much fun. We passed deer grazing in the woods, little streams, other cyclists and walkers. The early morning was the perfect temperature to ride and the lost thrills I had bike riding in Z. with Daniella, Arietta and Naomi returned. Those were the days ...

    Toward the end of the Loop, my friend and I came to a stream where we sat a while and talked about values and culture and our beliefs. It was rewarding to know my beliefs are shared by others. The sound of the stream trickling by made the time even more special. What is it about water that soothes you? Is it the rythm of its noise as it runs?

    In the afternoon, I assembled a desk I'd ordered online. It's a dark mahongany with a shelf underneath. Silver trims on the side. My style. The embarrassing thing is I didn't realize I was using a wrong tool to assemble it, so had it half assembled in my living area as I debated whether to ask my neighbor if he had the tool I needed. But my friend showed me the tool I needed had been sent with the screws. Freakin dumbass!

    Another friend and I then went dancing that night. The place wasn't as fun as before, but we saw a lot of interesting things going on that made the night lots of fun.

    Bike riding again this morning. Went down to Cherokee and then sat on the grass by the lake. Again and again, I realize how awesome the neighborhood is.

    Finally spoke to my old D.C. roommate. She spent a year in Scotland — how very fortunate. We regaled ourselves with talk of our summer in D.C. in our tiny-ass apartment. She has such a youthful and good heart. Those were the days ...
