To be honest, I normally don’t find myself celebrating calendar days — but I feel absolutely compelled to acknowledge International Tea Day. A hot cup of tea has proved a good friend to me over the past 28 some years of my professional life. From my first publishing job at Raven Press in New York City; to learning how to copyedit, proofread, and manage publications; to fleeing New York for North Carolina, where we started Technica Editorial Services; to all of life’s highs and lows and everything in between — my cup of tea has always been beside me. A steadfast companion, that cup of tea has been both a comfort and an inspiration, accompanying me every step of the way in my daily life as well as my professional world, including the many demands and countless iterations of the publishing world.
And so I say, “Well done, Cup of Tea! Enjoy your day!”
