  • “Marie has invited
    us to visit her in
    Paris,” my husband said.
    Joyful for him as he has
    Little contact with his
    Family it is a
    scary journey for me.

    Into the unknown;
    visiting a cousin
    who only eats vitamins
    and drinks black coffee. What
    will I eat and who will
    nourish me?

    Food is my only life
    support, like a parent
    who did not let me down.

    I meditated on
    my dilemma and a
    message came to me.
    You will not starve from three
    days of eating nothing.
    Water Is enough to
    survive. Be brave.

    From that time on ward I
    lost my fear of having
    nothing to eat
