I walk down to the junction, and Steve and I share breakfast at the Dipsea. I see 7 egrets, a Great Blue Heron, and 5 avocet. The naked ladies continue to wave. It is colder walking back than going. The fog is settling more tightly around us. A father and son drive a remote controlled boat in the sheltered water of the marsh. What a delightful start to this day.
I walked mindfully, thinking of Thich Nhat Hanh, and visualizing my feet walking on lotus flowers. I love being alive, and I feel completely well.
I read The China Study last night. It is certainly a convincing argument for eating less or no animal proteins, including dairy. I don't think I can cut it all out, but I certainly see that it would be a good thing if I could cut down and focus more on fruits, veggies, and beans. I toast with both sides of my heart more conscious eating today.
Fyodor Dostoyevsky said: "Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most."
May you overcome your fears today, and step wildly and vociferously, with new words spouting out from all your open pores.
