Bula! Wishing you all health and happiness as I lift my kava cup to you on the eve before the eve of the new year. For those of you who have never experienced a Kava Bar or been to the Fiji Islands where you were welcomed with the traditional ceremonial greeting, bula means Life - a blessing of health and happiness.
Kava. Life. They have a lot in common.
Kava tastes nasty until you acquire the taste. Life can be nasty until you learn how to cope, be grateful and enjoy.
Kava makes your mouth and tongue numb for a bit. Life can sting for a bit.
Kava is a natural relaxer, made from the root of a plant related to the pepper plant. It is used for anxiety and stress. Life or shit happens. Difficult times only make us strong in character.
Kava is an alternative to alcohol. Life. It's an alternative to death.
Bula! To Life! To good health and happiness!
