Strawberry Fields Forever... ;)

“There are places I remember
All my life, though some have changed

Some forever not for better

Some have gone and some remain

All these places had their moments

With lovers and friends
I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living

In my life I've loved them all…”

('In My Life', The Beatles)

On Monday May the 14th I had:

1 litre water
500ml green juice
avo/lime/spinach/Himalayan salt stuffed in nori sheets
raw date/almond/mesquite bar
1 litre water
1 apple
raw burger with spring greens and sprouts
walnut truffle ball
1 litre water

Top highlights for me of being in New York so far include (in no particular order):
*speaking at Bonobo’s restaurant on Monday night to a lovely crowd of around 40 people…one of whom had just started Juice Feasting that morning ;)
*hearing an amazing group of 5 black guys busking on the subway – they sang ‘My Girl’ and it was just exquisite to these ears. I appreciated SO much the heart space that they busted open down there in the seemingly cold, harsh environment of the subway. People were smiling and enjoying the beautiful harmonies…and I found myself actually moved to tears, I found it so beautiful the way their voices transformed the whole space…
*visiting Strawberry Fields in Central Park today (see picture)…John Lennon was a MAJOR hero for me when I was growing up and it felt nice to go there today and connect in with that energy again a bit. I’d never been to the ‘Imagine’ area before and I enjoyed it…lots of people sitting around and sharing in the nice peaceful energy…the park is really beautiful to see right now with lots of blossom blowing and people enjoying the sunshine…
*enjoying lunch on the roof garden of the apartment block I am staying in, looking out over this whole huge sprawling city…wandering around the roof munching on nori rolls and making sense of this urban landscape…(there is a building on the next block that has a running track around the outside of it, perhaps about 1/5th of the way up the building...lol...WOW...imagine...I guess so that the workers in there can step outside the office in breaks and...run around the building...like little hamsters on wheels ;)
*enjoying the astonishing convenience of everything and anything I may want being available and on hand, just a few minutes’ walk away…wow…there are even about 4 juice places within a few blocks around where I’m staying…amazing…
*discovering today that I don’t need to go all the way up to Harlem to get food from the marvellous Raw Soul restaurant, as there is a juice place on 72nd street called ‘24 Carrots’ that stocks their stuff – NICE :)

Today – Tuesday May the 15th, I had:

1 litre water
2 peaches
700ml green juice with apple
avo/lime/spinach/Himalayan salt stuffed in nori sheets
raw date/almond/mesquite bar
500ml water
500ml water
600ml green juice
slice of raw blueberry cheesecake
500ml water
2 peaches
750ml water

I speak tomorrow night at the High Vibe store on 3rd Street, then the following night out in a little place called Chestnut Ridge, about 30mins north of the city…details on my events page, as always…

One love,
