Walk slowly, smile, drink tea

Here's something that I think is really quite lovely and wise:
“From time to time, to remind ourselves to relax and be peaceful, we may wish to set aside some time for a retreat, a day of mindfulness, when we can walk slowly, smile, drink tea with a friend, enjoy being together as if we are the happiest people on Earth.”
It's by the marvelous Vietnamese monk, Thich Nhat Hanh.
