CHEW-A-THON: Day Two: Give Chew a ChanceSeptember 10th, 2009
So, hanging out in the Chew Chat Room this morning, I chatted with some people from the Czech Republic. Later on in the day, Canadians and Americans alike celebrated the benefits of the Big Chew. It was wonderful.
I felt today like I was completely in my body, and therefore in my feelings. Moment after moment, life just happened through me. No biggie. No drama. Just being. Truth be told, I am very acquainted with the little dramas that my mind creates and, at certain moments, I missed them. Clear consciousness, when not enjoyed, can be a little… boring?! But that’s cool. Moments cascade into moments and everything changes.
Then I cheated. At a party… veggie chips get passed… THOSE DAMN VEGGIE CHIPS! And I was, frankly, too embarrassed to stop and chew mid-conversation, as in: "Yeah, I’ve lived in L.A. for, like… (chew one hundred times)… a year now!" It just wasn’t going to happen.
But I’m back on the wagon.
By the way, I learned a couple of great things to today. First, there’s a group on Facebook for macrobiotic parents! Second, a woman named Sarah logged into the chat room from Prince Edward Island, Canada (home of Anne of Green Gables) and she runs a great website called Macromom.ca. Although in Canada, it’s probably pronounced Macro Mum! Check them out!
Off to bed,
