I haven’t eaten this entire month!
So here it is, the 2nd of December. Had a couple hamburgers two evenings ago, then two coffees yesterday morning, one with cream, one black. There was no plan until after that; “I should fast today” appearing in my mind.
You never know how a fast will go. The day went on and the sky cleared. This was a very good thing as solid clouds had hidden the moon the last two previous evenings. It was still ~98% full last night, good enough. My wife and I care very much about seeing the moon.
As I got toward the 24 hour mark since the hamburgers, there was a real surge of power, the very clean ‘Zoom’ feeling of mental clarity and efficient intensity I’ve felt a few times in the past while fasting. Some of that “euphoria” you hear mentioned. It’s been mostly a stranger to me; I certainly don’t count on it. And I wouldn’t think it would come in the first day. You never know…
Yesterday and today the daylight mornings have begun with the air temperature 29° F or -2° C. Our morning glory plant is stil blooming, but the leaves got damaged. I’m not sure if it will kill the plant. For the next ten days, the low temperatures are forecasted to be at or above freezing, so unless its number is up, it could go another couple weeks, perhaps.
On the edge of chaos lies great energy.
