I woke up appreciative that I even have food in my refrigerator and cans in the cupboard. Why is it that we react so dramatically when a catastrophe occurs but have such a difficult time staying the course during a regular day? I know how I need to eat to live for my best health. I know how to behave to reap the best rewards from my actions and to garner praise from others. I know how to decipher phrases, created documents, attend meetings, raise funds, do all of the “normal” things in life, yet I don't. Philosophy rules my day as I reach out to understand why the Earth shook and the waves crush and despair permeates the air.
It seems to become routine now evolving on this raw food walk as I try new things, experiment with recipes, take a water day or juice day. I am enjoy eating and enjoying the foods that I internalize. I recently saw a great video called “Food Inc.,” which gave me an eye opening perspective on this thing called food. I suggest it to others. What a crazy, amazing, somber day for all of us.
