One involves my daily drinking water. I have used only glass bottles to carry my daily drinking water ever since the PCB fears associated with plastic water bottles came to light and I have many that I rotate throughout the week. I would usually select these bottles based on the sole criteria that they were clean and dry. That's it.
This past summer, J was living in Copenhagen and brought me back an exquisite glass water bottle that is pictured here:
I adore this water bottle. I not only appreciate its design and functionality, but it is also the lightest weight glass bottle I have ever encountered. I also love the city it is from. My love of Copenhagen was actually first kindled by this blog, that seems to capture the vibe of the city perfectly. Most importantly, it was given to me with love and thoughtfulness from my very best friend, who I'm sure infused the bottle with her own positive energy. I definitely spend at least a few moments of my day appreciating this unique bottle, when I happen to have it in the rotation.
In my humble opinion, I believe that this attention to this bottle (and subconsciously, it's contents) has had an effect on the taste of the water. Although I fill all my water bottles (and jars) with the exact same filtered water from my Brita filter, whenever I enjoy it from this particular water bottle it tastes so incredible. The best description I can give is that it is crisp and clear, like water from a pure mountain spring, with no smell and no aftertaste.
Is it merely my mind playing tricks on me or are the very real theories of quantum physics in practice?
Why don't you try it for yourself and we'll compare notes? :)
Enjoy your day!
