Running. Running. Across the road – cars speeding by. Hop onto the ledge above the sidewalk. Mexican man driving a mower cutting the grass just below. For some reason every time I go to jump down from the ledge he’s there, as if on purpose. Then it’s obvious he’s after me. I stay on top and run across the ledge. He’s managed to drive his mower on top right behind me. I run as fast as I can. Across the road – cars speeding by. Into a building – maybe it’s a hospital of some kind. I dart into an elevator with a few other people. The man after me doesn’t seem to notice which elevator I’m in. The door shuts and we’re taken up and down – the 32nd floor – then the 21st floor – then to the basement – then back to the main floor. I run out hoping the man isn’t there anymore. Instead there’s some kind of police asking me questions.


Waking up at 10:35 a.m.

Oatmeal with Cinnamon, Raisins, Maple Syrup, and Kefir. Guayusa Tea.

To the Rec with Ana. She runs on the treadmill while I play basketball.

Scrambled Eggs. Toast with Non-Dairy Cream Cheese. Potato Chips with Avocado. Honey Green Tea.

Teaching lessons at Music Makers.

Quick trip to Trader Joe’s with Ana.

More lessons.

Back home. Enjoying dinner with my women (mom and Ana). Hefty Salad with Cabbage, Spring Mix, Onions, Tomatoes, and a Poppy Seed Mustard Vinaigrette. Lavash Bread.

Ana’s been preparing Vegan Cinnamon Rolls since last night – the dough had to rise a few times. We’re all very excited to get our hands on these gooey things.

“On a scale of 1 to 10 I give these a 9.9,” I tell her. “I change my mind. They’re a 10.”

Catching up on rock school homework – printing flyers – sending emails – organizing.

Chamomile Tea.

Playing with Ana and Elvis.

Sleep 2:30 a.m.
