I am normally not a creature who is accustomed to even half an empty stomach since I rush to fill my belly anytime a thought of food enters my mind which is almost every other hour. I had earlier in the summer tried fasting for health and philosophic reasons without much success. Food thoughts are hypnotically powerful.
Instead of a full day of fasting which would result in an unbearable grumpiness, I went for 16 hours skipping the main dinner. Being hungry by choice is a luxury I can claim for today. A shocking number of humans go hungry in a world where an even more shocking number of humans die as a result of being continually overfed. There rarely is a just balance in this world and I can only mind myself.
