More than the fruit...

Have you tried fig leaf tea? Nik and I have a huge fig leaf tree in the front yard, and not only do we give away as many as we can with a sign that says 'FREE FIGS', but we also dry the leaves overnight in the oven.
The next day we crunch them up and store them in a jar for a morning tea. Steep for 5 minutes and no longer. Here's more info on the benefits. It is really delicious and clean tasting!
A powerful read I just finished, Prisoners of the Castle, An Epic Story of Survival and Escape from Colditz, The Nazis' Fortress Prison. Colditz was the prison that housed the Allied POW officers and important assets. WW2 was gnarly and brutal.
The book is excellent, and haunting. It told the story of Audrey Hepburn in the end, she was starving and sickly and one of the POWs gave her Mom cigarettes to trade for medicine. Saved her life and she went on to become well, Audrey Hepburn. Damn, I love a good history book. 
Lastly, something to cherish: There is nothing more important to true growth than realizing that you are not the voice of the mind - you are the one who hears it. ~ Michael Singer
Have an awesome weekend.
