Question: My mom's thriving gardenia started wilting, though the leaves are still green. It sits on a window sill. I'm sure it's getting winter drafts. Would the floor be warmer? Answer: The floor may not be better since heat rises. Gardenias like bright, not direct, sunlight. Try placing the gardenia on a well-lit table away from the drafty window with a steady 62-63 degree temperature. Watering could also be an issue. Advise your mother to avoid over-watering the plant, especially now in the winter when it uses less.

"World Elsewhere," by Peter Brooks. Simon & Schuster. 224 pages. $23.By the third time or so that Prince Charles of Nassau-Seigen, the protagonist of Peter Brooks' novel, "World Elsewhere," makes his way through the lush Tahitian vegetation to the spring where, dropping his pareu loincloth, he makes bowdlerized and euphemistic yet wholly passionate and Arcadian love with Ite, his beautiful, unashamed and golden-bodied island girlfriend, one starts to feel that familiar throat-clutching panic of being trapped with someone who will not stop talking about their recent Club Med fling.

For Jacques L. Kahn, a poor boy growing up in the Baltimore of the Great Depression, the joy of receiving a scholarship to the Peabody Conservatory of Music was something that lasted a lifetime.Out of gratitude, Mr. Kahn later endowed and awarded a scholarship to the venerable Mount Vernon Place institution. He once said that being given a scholarship "was the first nice thing that ever happened to me, and my giving an annual scholarship now is a chance for me to duplicate for some other kid what that meant to me."

Unlike the heavy Italian food -- pasta, veal and peppers, calamari -- that is served on stage in Tom Dulack's "Breaking Legs," this comedy, which opened last night at the Mechanic Theatre, is definitely light fare.As directed by John Tillinger, its chief delight comes from the obvious pleasure the cast takes in performing this slight, but tightly staged, script. Indeed, at times it's delicioso to see Vincent Gardenia, Joseph Mascolo and Vince Viverito throw their weight around as big-time operators in a small town.
