Manna or Grind?

First, as you wander in the wilderness, you may distill your thoughts into this divine medicine and nourish your sun-cracked mouths. The roads to Jericho and Jordan are paved with the sticky residue of Heaven's food. Gather it and eat it with relish before it perishes, and becomes spoiled with worms.

Manna, although we're not certain of its exact form or properties, is essentially divine nourishment. What's your Manna? What is it that feeds you when you're hungry and barefoot in the desert? What would you desire most of all if you had nothing in the world? Would it be the dew that falls upon the land during the night? The bread of life?
