A few minutes ago, after taking my first mouthful of pills for the day (washed down with a teaspoon of cod liver oil mixed in a bit of water), and my six dropperfuls of Chinese herbs, I poured myself a 16 oz. glass of Pellegrino water, and added to that eight drops of "Clear Thought," which is one of the "essences" (flower essence? herbal essence? essential herbal oil?) that I get from Dr. Bruce Berkowsky.
I don't know the ingredients in Clear Thought. All I really know for sure is that every time the day comes round (twice a week) to have a glass of Clear Thought, I get happy. I think, Oh good! I get to have Clear Thought today!
After adding the drops, I take my big glass of water to my desk with me, and I take small sips over a fairly long period of time. Before every sip, I stir it.
is there something in that little brown glass bottle of Clear Thought that truly does help me? I mean, on some scientific physiological biological level? I admit it: I have no idea. But I do believe in the power of magical thinking.
