I'm sick again.
I've come to the conclusion that my immune
system is much like the Canadian Forces: poorly funded and ill-equipped
to defend such a great home.
In my case, my diet plays a large
part in the weakening of defenses. However, a little over a month ago, I
decided to step out of my rut and make a few (wholesale) changes.
First off, I've cut down my pop (and alcohol) intake by a good 70%, and
scaled back on the coffee as well. Secondly, I've taken a long, serious
look at what I've been eating.
I made the decision then to slowly
"go organic". Maybe not 100%, but a significant portion of my diet
will be organic in a few months time.
As the Universe enjoys
toying with us mortals via synchronicity, something else happened around
the same time that made me want to stick with my new plan...
I found my soulmate.
readers of Conceit and Sociopathy's comment section will remember a
certain young lady named Priestess Yemaya or Metis Butterfly, an old
friend of mine from our
days. Well, long story short, we met for coffee at the beginning of
November (originally so I could buy a few boxes of Girl Guide cookies
from her group) and have been dating ever since.
As it turns out,
the Priestess had also made a vow to "go organic" a while ago, and we've
been learning together. She's introduced me to a number of little
shops and eateries around town that I otherwise would have ignored, in
parts of town I would rarely go... which is sad, because some of these
areas (Westminster/Wolseley, etc) are perfect examples of Walkability
which, as someone with an interest in urbanism, are eminently
Where am I going with this?
Well, this will mean one of two things.
A) I'll have new inspiration and new experiences to write about, and will blog accordingly
B) I'll be too busy living, loving, and learning, and thus have neither time nor inclination to write.
Personally, I'm trying for "A" but we'll see how it goes.
