Early this morning, in the dream just before awakening, I was explaining to someone else why I had to stop my intermittent fasting. A nomad, I was saying, needs to be able to gorge on whatever opportunity springs up in his path: a blackberry patch, plum tree, or whatever else. Plus, I found, if I don't take a little yogurt for the probiotic effect first thing in the day, I don't do it later. On waking up, the argument sounded good, so I decided to treat IF (intermittent fasting) as a guideline rather than a goal, the same way I do with ketogenic dieting.

As for the respiratory illness I had a short time ago: I may or may not have mentioned, I was gifted some lateral flow (iHealth) tests, and tried 3, all of which came up negative for covid. So who knows, maybe it was something else. Anyway, the itchy throat persisted for 2 or 3 more days after the other symptoms faded, but I've been back to normal for at least 3 or 4 days now.
