When studying macrobiotics years ago I read that it's important to sweat. Keeping the air conditioning off is important and letting my glands work essential.
Keeping that in mind I stirred up a batch of granola during the hottest part of the day.
Currently, in an increasingly hot kitchen, I am opening a 250 degree oven to stir grains and nuts every fifteen minutes for one and one half hours.
And sweating...just a little.
Tom is building a fence and sweating...just a lot.
Water is plentiful. Our bodies seem to like the purging of toxins.
So, with my face in the oven I stir. In between bouts I water gardens.
And Tom builds. In between bouts he sips tea.
I feel happy in this.
It is natural.
It is good.
(But I will still cool off the house unnaturally later because too much of good thing, well, you know.)
