I eat little meat, as a condiment for my vegetables. Peas are my favorite. I don’t drink much. And, I am typically up by dawn. Obviously I bathe daily – mostly because of my physical training regimen. And, I have a quirk, learned from my Grandad, where I bathe my feet in cold water each day.

I hear more and more often these days, that others too, are following this practice, call it a ritual. They have read this Blog.

My life has a pattern: heady achievement undercut by humbling reverse, happiness taxed by humiliation. For now the drumbeat of events have drowned out recrimination.

Peace to my Brothers and Sisters.
