Plus, three reader comments:
Says AK on the magic of purifying the mind by swimming in cold water: “I am part of a group of women who meet every morning to swim. Granted, we wait until spring begins, but there’s nothing more magical than watching a group of women walk through the woods to gather at the edge of a lake at sunrise, take off their clothes and get into the water. It’s a secret I enjoy carrying all day. There are no grains in the store that I wanted? That’s fine, I started the day with a naked swim! “
Veronica says the magic of purifying the mind by swimming in cold water: “I’m going through in vitro fertilization – we lost the last one 10 months ago a few months ago – so it was difficult. My husband has been taking a cold shower for years, but I’ve always resisted since I hate cold water. One day I was very low and thought, ok, now I’m doing it. At first I screamed and sang, it was so cold. But coming out, I felt some euphoria. It’s been three months and I love it; I feel so much better every time! It’s also good practice to teach yourself not to be afraid and simply act on your decision, “I’m going in,” and you’re going in. “
Say Christian AE further an amazing conversation mover: “As an Asian child born and raised in Canada, I wondered why my parents never used words of affection as families on TV. What I didn’t realize was that the gesture of cleaning, peeling, and cutting the fruit to enjoy together was one filled with the kind of love, attention, and care I thought I missed. My lolo and lola would ALWAYS peel grapes (!) For my sister and me. The green apple is cut into uniform pieces and sprinkled with salt to cut through the carrots. God forbid there were any leftover pits left on their peeled oranges, grapefruits and pomeloes before they distributed the pieces to our family members. Now that I’m older, I try to eat fruit as part of my diet. Sometimes I will spend time peeling an orange in a way that will make my family proud. My lolos and my lolas are long gone, but I miss them very much every time I have fruit for dessert. “
