I made us a cinnamon/crenshaw melon juice. I then rode my bike with my surfboard to the beach to meet my surf brother, mentor & fellow rad dad bod boyle. We surfed for about an hour …i trunked it. On my way home I felt soooooo good that i was SINGING SOUL SONGS FROM MY HEART…JUST TROBADOURING ON MY BIKE RIDE HOME….i had no worries just joy and peace and i no for a fact that joy which is in me all the time was getting unlocked by me slowling down ….slowing down….SLOWING DOWN. To be here now…to be in the moment…that is the number 1 thing that ive learned from this last self experwnt/mini journey means…im a happy person when im not running around chasing my tail. Lesson learned slow down and.smell the fucking roses. We are all gonna die…enjoy your journey, celebrate others, inspire people you meet and share your passion!!!

When i got home..i started to work then my friend/photographer malika sqalli from morocco came over.and.we talked (i mean she talked..i listened) i’ve noticed that i dont have the energy to.talk very much but im a.great listener right now..another observation from the gift of fasting;)) After Malika left ..my mom.came over and.she looked.at an outline that i made for a book of my documentary that i filmed on football fan’s called America’s Greatest Fan. I just had a flash of growing up and my mom making bacon &.eggs.for.dinner and.we would eat orowheat bread w knotts berry farm.strawberry jam…foodflash;))  here’s where the fast makes a change…i was super tired at this point so i took i took a nap and when i woke up…i was chilled and.my.stomach hurt..gnawing at me. The first time in the.fast.where i wanted to vomit and i was cold.deeply from the surfing without.a.wetsuit and having no food in my.engine!!!! My brother at this point was not having it anymore he told me that he.was.eating and going.to break the fast… I told him not too.and.we.waited for about an hour…my body.felt better but i felt cold and like shot…i.decided then to stop the fast…my body.wasnt happy anymore…so we broke the fast one day earlier..pretty simple..i feel better that i ate but i still.feel.queasy! My.1st hite of food.was pinenuts w garlic..a side dish that.we made for our 1st meal…which.was.eggs w jalapenos, pascilla.chilles, black beans and flour tortillas..we.wanted to out but we where to.exhausted to leave the house..my second bite as the egg and it was next bite and next and next….my body.was cheering me on saying tony eat me im protein and your body says i love you chaka!!!! Im not dissappointed about stopping the.fast i feel great and i know my body needed the food. I will write more on this experience …i am exhausted…of to bed
