The Hälssen & Lyon tea calendar is the first calendar in the world to feature calendar days made from tea leaves. Finely flavoured and pressed until wafer-thin, the 365 calendar days can be individually detached and brewed directly in the cup with hot water. The tea calendar was sent exclusively to selected business partners.
“In the end, we conserve only what we love. We will love only what we understand. We will understand only what we are taught.”

— (via fuckyeahreading)
Give the gift of your absence to those who do not appreciate your presence.
But perhaps, after so much talk and fighting, unspoken words do create a silence in whose gentleness the survivors of good and bad can sleep easy.
— Miljenko Jergovic, from “The Saxophonist” in Sarajevo Marlboro, translated by Stela Tomaševic (via the-final-sentence)
