Questions from the tea

The Pickwick tea we drink has conversation starter questions on the little tag. I work through them, building a vocabulary for my eventual return to the Netherlands. This one asks "what life lessons do you want to pass on to others?". I wish to pass on not just the skills of knitting and needlework, but the meditative benefits of holding still and working on what is in front of you. There is also the gratification and joy of creating something from materials that look very little like the end product.

Asking these questions aloud is a different matter. I am nowhere near being able to pass on any lessons in pronunciation, but I am happy to help you pick up a stitch or choose colors.
