When I got home from Dallas, we had a wonderful three-day meeting at our church, but as soon as it was over I started to fast to let my body recover. I had a head-ache when Dr. Fielder was here in May. He told me it was time to fast....but I had no time. This was the first time I had a block of time sufficient to see it through. On Monday, I went on watermelon only for two days. The reason for this was so I could go to my flute lesson and Flute Ensemble rehearsal on Tuesday. Once I go on water only I'm not able to do much of anything. Starting on Wednesday, I fasted on water only for six days under the supervision of Dr. John Fielder. I should have fasted longer, but ....no more time. I broke the fast yesterday with orange juice. It was delicious. Dr. Fielder gave me a pep talk on how important it is to avoid restaurants. There is always a price to pay. I do know that, but traveling with other people makes it more difficult...at least for me.

Our raw food group had a good meeting in July. The people that come are always so interesting and nice. Just a fabulous group.
