ONE-HUNDRED FOURTEENTH

A.  Peppermint improves life very much.  Feeling stressed?  Take a whiff or drink some peppermint tea (i.e., hot peppermint leaf infusion).  Want to make chocolate taste better?  Or milk?  Add some peppermint. Trouble sleeping?  More peppermint.  Headache?  Fill a jar with 1/3 lavender and 2/3 peppermint and breathe deeply.

B.  The gifts others give us, insofar as they are perfect gifts (i.e. given and received well), attain a significance beyond the everyday.  But what does it mean to give and receive a gift well?

C.  Sleep.
