Day 7 – Woke up at 4:30 AM, in part because our littlest one had a bad dream. Kids crying puts a shot of adrenaline into my body. He is sleeping, I am wide awake.

5:00 am – Decided to make some hot tea and finished the first morning flurry of emails.

Thinking about justice and the paths to peace. Am struck that President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf of Liberia has spent her life working towards progress in that country and she has never picked up a gun. That is not even true of Mandela. I guess it is possible to achieve peace through peace.

Will wait to eat later in an hour or so. It is going to be a long day.

2 pm – got light headed this morning when kneeling down to talk to preschoolers this morning. So drank a lot of water and herbal tea this morning. Feeling better – amazing how food, even a little, balances and calms us.

Oh, weighed myself this morning – down 5 pounds from the start – to 137.
