Yesterday I ate:

11:00 . . a few medjool dates
2:00 . . . 14 small honey tangerines
3:00 . . . a few medjool dates
5:00 . . . 2 cantaloupes

Play: barefoot walking/running ~ 5 miles, acrobatics, stretching
Here is how I sometimes eat tangerines. . . cut into pieces with the middle section containing seeds cut out. It is like avoiding the core of an apple, and in citrus, the middle section is the most sour section of the fruit. 2 plates like this one make a nice little snack for me. These honey tangerines are SO good and I am not tiring of them at all. I'll be sad to see them go.
But there is such a rhythm and pattern to Nature, to the seasons of the fruits. Every time a "new" fruit comes into season, it is like welcoming back an old familiar friend. I think this would be true no matter where one lives.
I live in the woods, and I get to observe lots of animals in their habitat. They definitely have a rhythm and pattern to their daily cycle. For the most part, it seems to me that they have a period of activity, followed by eating, and then a time of resting/sleeping. Then the pattern is repeated, on and on.
And when I have total control over my life and my schedule, that is exactly what I like to do, too: be active, then eat, then rest/sleep for a while. It is simple and simple pleasures are the best. It is fun to experiment with being a true animal of Nature, which we often forget that we are! ♥
