“Everything you do right now ripples outward and affects everyone. Your posture can shine your heart or transmit anxiety. Your breath can radiate love or muddy the room in depression. Your glance can awaken joy. Your words can inspire freedom. Your every act can open hearts and minds.” – David Deida
After a string of rather disappointing interactions, I decided it was time to do a little self reflection. So this weekend found me reading about personality types, my own personality type, strengths, weaknesses, dynamics. Possibly, it is an insatiable need to understand the human condition or more broadly, the insatiable need to understand.
A little self reflection doesn’t hurt every now and then now does it? And the more in-tuned we are to the persons that we are, the better we are able to cope with the world around us.
The name gin is derived from genièvre (French) and jenever (Dutch), both of which mean “juniper,” of which this spirit derives its predominant flavor from. Gin is one of the broadest classifications of spirits, with a varied range of origins, styles and flavor profiles revolving around the flavor of the juniper berry.
Juniper berries carry a flavor often described as “piney” and is often used in European and particularly in Scandinavian cuisines to impart a “bright and fresh” flavor to meat dishes, in particular game meats.
There is an interesting Facebook page dedicated to the spirit – https://www.facebook.com/ginandtonicreviews . Providing honest and straightforward reviews of Gin from all over the world, providing notes and flavors of both neat and when with tonic. I would even say it is educational, and might help you decide what Gin is right for you for your next Gin & Tonic.
