An Explainable Absence

(migrated from my Tripod blog on 11/05/2011)

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.

Longtime 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 wild/crazy/drunken/released-on-own-recognizance-with-a-promise-to-appear 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 desireable.

Where am I going with this?

Well, this will mean one of two things.

Either:
A) I'll have new inspiration and new experiences to write about, and will blog accordingly
or
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.
