Spring Break Hermitage

I've been in semi-seclusion for 1.5 days so far.  Here are some initial thoughts:

  • I forgot how much I love to read fiction. I devoured an entire Dresden Files novel yesterday
  • Fresh juice is crazy awesome.  My favorite so far is cucumber, pineapple, hot pepper, basil.
  • If you drink a pound of carrots (and no solid food) in 2 days, your poo turns bright orange.
  • Butternut squash juice is gross.  
  • Juice fast is pretty easy so far, but boring. Turns out I REALLY like food.
  • I have amazing dreams if I wake around dawn, read for an hour or so and then go back to sleep.
  • My mother is now a glowing bodhisatvah made from cobalt blue crystal who lives in Chesed and looks like a weird cross between Kali and the Virgin Mary. (not at all like the picture to the right)
  • Meditating is much easier when you're not sleep deprived.
  • I need to sleep a lot.  Seriously.  Given it's druthers, my body seems to like to sleep for about 6 hours, wake up for an hour or two, and then go back to sleep for another 4 hours.
