Hippie in Hollywood

 I was in Whole Foods yesterday 3 times. It can be fun shopping for a friend,and then kept on coming back for coconuts on sale.  Yum. nourishing and hydrating
Peanut butter?  am I buying the right brand? get the one with less fat??
wakame seaweed?  does it need a a hescher???
4 boxes of waffles-they have chia and flax seed
the bell peppers aren't kosher, does it matter
these are the things to ponder
gluten free raisin bread?  Pas yisroel
each time I used store credits-the yo yo of buying and returning

the day before I was very thirsty and went into Erhwon to check out price on Blackcurrant oil, salivate over the juice bar-does someOne want to pick me up and invite me for a juice?  and slather on patcholi scented body lotion. now I smell like a hippie
I decide that it might be more reasonable price wise at WF, so I go to the juice bar there and down a drink with parsley, kale, cucumber, ginger.  my cells are getting some nourishment.

Purging Possesions

I am in Hoarders Heaven. I am at my fathers house. There is dust. There is dust on the dusting spray can. there is the spices that are in a rack that seem like from the dinosaur age. I pull out a pillowcase from a drawer, it is from his 2nd marriage. Can we just get rid of all this CRAP, or maybe...its someone's treasures.

My father worked for Control Data in the late 70's. He's the original techie geek. he's an engineer. his toys include an electric lathe.
every surface has stuff-books, binders, boxes, chatchkes.  and Oy, I inherited this.
I'm working on this, I am so AWARE of my need to let go, live simply.
I enter his cluttered house, immediately he wants to give me things. A suitcase. I wish I could fill it up with stuff and haul it away. I am taking the train tomorrow, so my attitude is, you can't carry it, you
DON' T need it.
