another morning in the mountains

We just had to go back to that river. Somehow it’s addicting, the wildness of it all. You become so small, with the water rushing along, oblivious to you; with the mountains towering above you. It’s the absence of the rat race, I think. The antithesis of wanting more, simply because there’s so much in this place. It’s very satisfying.

Some wild places are fierce and threatening; this place is not. It feels friendly, as if it’s all smiling on you.

And so you smile back.

    Wow, that’s amazing!

    That’s really interesting that you followed the Norman Walker diet. I didn’t know that it was also called the Hallelujah diet.

    And your statement about it being good but not for sustaining generations of offspring…did you mean its not good for pregnancy and small children?

    I wish I could have gotten to know you more! 🙁

    Hey Kate!
    No, I think the Walker Diet would probably have great results for pregnancy and small kids. I meant that after about 3 or 4 generations, kids seem to start showing some deficiencies from a complete vegan diet. But like I said, I do think it’s a great diet for regaining health and even losing weight…and of course, I think it’s WAAAAYYY better than the SAD (Standard American Diet). Hopes this helps!
