Patria, a secondary character in my novel, owns a tea shop. She mixes special teas to help you sleep and dream. She also reads the tea leaves. She is a gypsy living in the mountains of Colorado.

*A free-write is a type of automatic writing, where you just go with your stream of consciousness non-stop. There's no thought to spelling or grammar, and no editing of words. Supposedly this opens the mind up to greater creativity. They can be 5, 10 or 20 minutes long. Suggestions for freewrites are always welcome.
