Rapture Remembered at Rest: The Rhyme of the Hungry Dawn Raver (spoken word)

With the coronavirus on the loose, I don't see this as a time for fasting. As I understand it, although your immune system can come back stronger after a fast, while fasting it can temporarily be lowered - not ideal at the current time. It might therefore be thought that this wouldn't be the best … Continue reading Rapture Remembered at Rest: The Rhyme of the Hungry Dawn Raver (spoken word)

On the Iranian Injunction against Dancing

In Persia dancing has been bannedHow hard the heart, how cruel the hand Commanding such a dreadful purgeAcross that ancient, noble land For dance is our deep seated urge Responding to a joyous surgeMore full of soul and spirit than Some somber, drearyl prayer-time dirge Rule-maker, cast your mind through time To when you were … Continue reading On the Iranian Injunction against Dancing

A Demigod Danced in my Kitchen Today

I fasted yesterday for the first time after quite a long Winter break, and had an HDR session this morning. It was easier than I expected.

Glorifying Your Gratitude Journal with Odes – 1) An Ode to Bath Locks

I'm getting into the idea of keeping a kind of glorified scrapbook / gratitude journal where instead of just listing things you're glad about, (shown by scientific studies to be an effective long-term mood raiser) you go all out and write lofty odes about those things on your list which generate sufficient passion. With this … Continue reading Glorifying Your Gratitude Journal with Odes – 1) An Ode to Bath Locks

Why Not Hungry Evening Raving?

Once the genetic switches have flicked to put the body comfortably into the Fasting State, does it really matter what time of day it is as far as HDR is concerned? Does it really have to be Hungry Dawn Raving – couldn’t it be done at other times? If it could, there could be practical … Continue reading Why Not Hungry Evening Raving?
