Raw foods have higher nutrient values than foods which have been cooked

that is what i read from a super trusty source, wikipedia.

but you know what? i'm not thinking about food, i'm thinking about soul food, raw emotion, and process.
i'm thinking that there is something beautiful inside this raw feeling i have in my heart and there-abouts. i am thinking that distance is tangible, need is imagined, perception is sometimes a chokey smokey telescope, obsession is shrinkable, curiosity is inflammatory.

but. i do believe that all this rawttitude, rawtivity, rawxclamations, warm and malleable, contribute greatly to the life experience.  perspective and relativity is pretty much the most important tool in examining the raw soul food.


p.s. have you guessed my anxiety is binding then icing the underside of my breast bone? right between my heart and lungs and the upper rib cage i can feel this little red anxiety monster squeezing my lungs with his toes and icing my heart with huge icy mittens.

i am feeling insecure in some of my personal relationships, lonesome, and beating myself up.  i'll feel better soon.  i know.  i always get through the fields of tangle weed doubt.  and i hope the cause of my insecurities is just a personal rough patch and not a true reflection of the condition of a very important station of my heart.

in other news, Theo went to school every day last week.  and today, too!  today he told me the only part of school he doesn't like is LEAVING!

Ditto to everything that Sharyn said. And a little xoxoxoxo like Elizabeth.
