    I wish I did more of the readings in a lot of my classes too.

        I watched the Morgan Freeman series a few years ago and really enjoyed it.

          Was it Liar Liar that he played God in? Perfect casting, of course. Can you imagine him as your father or grandfather? He plays such similar characters that I have to think he is very much the same in real life.

                • Sunday Morning

                  By now you guys are probably used to me thinking in song lyrics (Unless, of course, you've missed that most of my Subject Lines are song references.)



                  So it's Sunday morning in a new time zone, and after only one night I switched to the new rhythm.

                  New York is similar to London in a lot of ways. They're probably the most cosmopolitan, multi-cultural cities in the world, but there is a significant difference: the feeling.

                  People in London are lovely, but you don't pick that up from the energy on the streets. New York is famous for making people tough, but to survive in London you develop a frosty mask. Once you get talking to people it's a different matter, but people are reserved, and that creates an energy that is at once superficial and impenetrable.

                  Here, there is a sense of non-verbal openness. It's so nice to share spontaneous smiles with people, and to joke about inane things. I'm loosing the London frostiness rapidly. London is not my home.

                  Funny, how there's two places in the world that whenever I go there, I feel like I'm home. India, and the USA. First time I came to the US I was 17. We landed in Boston, and I told my mum that this was the place I was going to live.

                  Speaking of my mum: being with her non-stop is making me see how out-of-control her drinking has gotten. I guess I turn a blind eye when I'm at home, but she's seriously on a slippery slope. I'm surrounded by alcoholics: my mother, grand mother, even my house mate..! Not that I can judge: I have addictions of my own.

                  Speaking of which, I'm trying something new at the moment. Every time I start to think of myself with hatred (more frequently then I'd like to admit), I've started to focus on my heart, and create a feeling of love within myself, for myself. It has an amazing effect. Obviously it makes me feel better, but other things start to happen when I do it. My stomach starts to make noises, muscles start to twitch...

                  I've been trying to control my externals through externals (diet, exercise, life style), but now more than ever, I believe love is the source of true health.

                  • Hey YogaBare! I've always loved New York.

                    • Didn't get to finish my post... Do you think you will move to the U.S. anytime soon? Are you planning to make more stops in other places besides Cali? lol

                      I don't post that often but I've been following in the journals. Sorry to hear about your Mom's drinking.

                        Cant wait to hear about the ombare meetups!

                        • It's funny that you perceive NY as open. The US generally perceives it as how you describe London. I suppose it's all relative. Can't wait to hear about your day!

                          I'm sorry to hear about your mom's issues. It inspires a feeling of hopelessness to watch someone close to you be self destructive like that and not be able to really do anything about it (well, short of staging an intervention or something)

                          ...I believe love is the source of true health.

                              Hey brooke! Saw you started a journal but haven't had a chance to check it out yet. Look forward to posting there Yaw... we arrived in Santa Cruz last night after a few days in NYC. I'm not sure what the plan is. My folks want to go to Vegas, but I think I'd prefer to spend more time in SF, getting to know it. I'm HOPING to move out at the end of October... I just found a sponsor, so we'll see what happens!

                              Thanks. Yeah, the drinking is hard. I talked to her about it and thought I got through to her, but two days later she was drinking again. Which leads me to think it's more of a problem than I even realised.

                              Jesus, what a hippie :/
                              If you think that's hippie, just be grateful you'll never be taking class A's at a music festival with me

                              By the way, How are you watching the season finale of Game of Thrones tonight?!?! Are you missing it?!???? :O
                              (I don't care for it, but my bf does. And everyone I know loves it. I just .... can't get into it.)
                              Awww, thank you! Yes, I watched the season finale... I can't miss it!

                              That's a shame you can't get into it - it's so rewarding to watch. Are you not into fantasy stuff? Have you ever watched "Dexter" btw? I have a feeling you might like that.

                              • I'm in Ketoisis

                                Bet that got your attention..!

                                To all my carbavour friends... I have a confession to make. I got so frustrated with my stomach bloat and weird recent weight re-gain (which I was too withered to even mention) that I decided to go low carb for a few days just to drop some water weight. THe weird thing is, is that by day two I was in ketosis. And I kind of like it

                                Whenever I under eat I can feel the moment when I start to slip into starvation ketosis. It's usually acommpnaied by jitters, and a feeling of frenzy. Last time I was low carb I was VLC, but it took me a week to get into ketosis. Once I got there it was a horrible experience. I felt like a maniac, and I couldn't sleep.

                                However, this time I didn't even realise that it had happened. I suddenly felt calm, incredibly focused, and yet energetic, but it didn't click that it could be ketosis... until I realised that I stank. Wo-ah. How do people do this all the time?! Surely the smell must go after a while? I've never had issues with bad breath or BO, but now I'm washing under my arms and chewing gum non-stop.

                                The low carb part is moderate though. Day one I had tons of raspberries, greek yogurt (low fat, ha!), eggs for breakfast, oysters for lunch, tuna tartare and scampi for dinner. And spinach. OF COURSE! Day two was similar, but by lunch time I was starting to hum. Day three I actually ate sushi, but it didn't knock me out of ketosis. Today will be day four low carb.

                                I wonder if the ease with which I've entered Ketosis is because of the contrast with my high carb diet? And maybe it's a pleasant experience so far cos' I'm not undereating this time? Definitely won't be doing this for long, but it's interesting to experiment with cutting back on the carbs after being high carb for so many months.

                                In other news: DEATH BY PLANE FOOD. Ate a load of gluten the day we were travelling, and guess what happened? Yup, after perfect skin for about two months: cystic acne outbreak.

                                It would be interesting to experiment with different kinds of bread though, to see if it's the actual wheat, or if the crap that goes into poor quality bread is what's causing the reaction. I don't get outbreaks from pasta.

                                I also got a horrible outbreak of cold sores before travelling... which is unusual too. I've maybe had ten in my life, and suddenly I have ten all at once! I know I was tired for two weeks prior to my departure, but I'm tired so frequently that I don't take any notice of it, but I guess I must be run down.

                                Oh, and yes - I'm in CALI baby!!! So many observations to share. Later...

                                Missing all you guys! <3
