Good Morning – Afternoon - Evening.
The curtains have been drawn and the window has been flung open. I stand and enjoy the the floral scents; the clement breeze. It makes a change from the piercing winds that sliced through me just some months ago. Summer has arrived at last, hence why I have stirred from my pit to rejoin civilisation.

Having studied nutrition in quite some depth, I can tell you that the idea of vegetarianism or veganism devitalising and prohibiting an individual from living a healthy lifestyle, is utterly ridiculous.
