so far the fight on coffee goes well. and so does the vegetarian diet. i’m back on my vegetable juice: carrot, celery, ginger (burns so good) and cucumber. a fantastic mix if i may say so myself. energy level has gone up…oh, i’d say, 50%. entonces, great success. walking and writing are back in too. today was sunny, 65 degrees and i walked about 6 miles. i’ll no longer be ‘old man ellis’ in due time…j’espere. i’m reading ‘einstein’s dreams’ by alan lightman. very inspiring little book. it reminds me a bit of ‘marcovaldo’ by calvino. i wrote a short story based on one of the chapters and tied in something that happened to me in paris one day; part fiction part non.
In this world, there are two times. There is mechanical time and there is body time. The first is as rigid and metallic as a massive pendulum of iron that swings back and forth, back and forth, back and forth. The second squirms and wriggles like a bluefish in a bay. The first is unyielding, predetermined. The second makes up its mind as it goes along.
