The past few weeks have been a whirl— wrapping up the U.S. dance/book tour for Delicious Healing (at least for this year) as well as gathering with and saying goodbye (for now)to loved ones in the States as we hit the road again.  

In the spirit of self care, I took a bit of a break from Instagram to ride the above whirl.

Speaking of self care, fasting during long trips has been a practice I have been loving for a few years now You can check out my You Tube video on jet lag for more on why I fast during travel if it’s not obvious from the title of the video 😉

The way one comes out of a cleanse/detox or fast is, in my belief, just as important as the detox  or fast itself.

And melons which are so easy to digest, hydrating, and replenishing of vital vitamins and minerals, are a wonderful way to emerge from fasting.

On our way to the Canary Islands yesterday, my sweetheart and I spent one night in Madrid where after a 40+hour travel fast and crossing 5 time zones, I had the above spread of Piel de sapo  and Galia melons followed by two juicy donut peaches, all local to Spain.

And this morning, headed back to the airport for more travel, I have no jet lag, great/quiet digestion, and fantastic energy. Which is a lovely way to arrive anywhere..

You can choose to enter the space of love
like one would a fighting ring—
chin low, fists high, sword in your back
pocket, expectant of the
blows.

That is one way.

But there is another entrance
and it creates a very different room.

You can enter mouth...
