June 21, 2010*****Me mirroring my environment*****
Yesterday was a day of fruit buying. In Blythe, these are the days I enjoy most…shopping days. My cache including 30 fresh-picked local grapefruit for $6 and they were huge, a ton of peaches, a good bunch of mangos at 3 for .99 cents, about 4 watermelons, 1 cantaloupe, some cilantro for the bunny rabbits, fresh okra, a 5 pound bag of carrots, romaine, a few red bell peppers and a tomato… lfrv fruitarian style is back on! This morning I had my favorite breakfast…watermelon of course. I did a lot of writing and took on a submitting challenge, I also did a poetry prompt and I’ve talked to a lot of people about the intentional community/co-op/health fair/fundraising stuff.
Raa and I also came up with a new ecstatic relationship rule. From now on if one of us needs to fart we have to rub our butt against the other person and fart on each other… that way farting is an inclusive activity, and everyone gets to share in the experience! It was a very pleasant experience each time we did it, and I’m sure I had one of those laughing experiences when I sound like a hog… as my daughter likes to call me. *snort snort*
June 19, 2010 *******Me merging with the universe*******
Today I woke up kinda early. I ate a cucumber salad with fresh grapefruit juice as the dressing, it was awesome! I think I did some writing, then my daughter and I went outside, it was nice out and around 7am when we went outside. We played on her bike and it was great exercise for me, it forced me to do yoga to readjust my pregnant body. We played in the seashells and beautiful quartz outside at the doorway, and I took some pictures of my belly on my phone. We had a great talk too, about the sun and rocks and nature in general. We came back inside and did more talking, drinking water, playing a little. I cleaned a little and we were hungry so I sliced two red bell peppers and put eggs inside them and put them in our cooker. I sliced up some onion too and threw that in. I was so happy about how simple of a meal it was, and how inexpensive and how I wouldn’t have to use oil to cook it that I started taking pictures of it and planning to write about it. I prefer being vegan and I prefer being raw, but I feel happy with myself, when I make sure I eat enough and eat things that make me feel functional, especially in this town where much produce is overpriced, under supplied and not ripe. I can go days being a fruitarian, but I feel great being someone who doesn’t need to put seasonings on my food, and eating economically and satisfying food. The fact that I don’t have to use many dishes or make much of a mess helps too. Later I did more writing, a great leg and foot massage and put my daughter to sleep for a nap. There is nothing too excitingly amazing going on, except life… that I am content, eager for more and enjoying the simplest pleasures… it is early still, but it has been a very ecstatic day, and the mindset is there to stay, so I can’t wait to see what else this day promises.
[Disclaimer: I decided to delete the food pictures because. I don’t encourage eating eggs or any animals or animal secretions, and the picture disgusted me. When I lived in Blythe, CA(never go there, ever) I was desperate and family brought me food because there was such a low variety there. After I ate the eggs, I couldn’t eat eggs anymore. It made me feel that bad. I don’t want to appear to support this and I don’t want the pictures on my page any more.]
March 8, 2010 *******Me melting into pregnancy*******
Today I was very domestic. I woke up and did some journaling and then went and played with my daughter. We noticed how playful she was so we took her to the park. I was very prepared and brought notebooks, bananas, apples, bread, and my daughter’s cup. My mate told me that his dreams have become revelations, I congratulate him on that… it’s very exciting.
