It’s 2:11 AM
Just got up after a couple of hours sleep. Bea’s right behind, sleeping soundly near as I can tell. And I’m filled to the brim with a mix of love, adoration and euphoria, such that I figured it was time to get my ass out of bed and write about it instead of merely thinking about it while staring at a dark ceiling — at 2 am. High emotion fuels a blog, and that’s just the fact.
Here’s all the pics I Tweeted earlier, throughout the night. This ought to give you an envious clue, even though I ought to just make you go look at them on Twitter and be my “follower.” But I’m such a nice guy. There’s lots, mostly candid. This is not even yet the beginning of the King of Earth Nutrition, the Ancestral Health Symposium. I’m not going to take time to link so if you’re new, stumbling in here or whatever, Google names, places, events.
I’m eating real beef jerky, but I’ll get to that later.
That’s Pedro Bastos off to the right. Melissa McEwen & Chris Masterjohn are genetically made for each other, I’m certain. Cutest couple ever. After chatting with Gary Taubes in the lobby for 15 minutes and before chatting with Loren Cordain and Pedro in the bar for another 15 minutes or so, Bea & I met up wit Melissa and Chris and offered them a ride. We stopped off at a local Whole Foods, then went to the event.
I was so embarrassed that Stephan finally came up to me and said “hey, Richard.” It’s like not noticing God in the room. I suppose that’s easy for me, though.
Who do you see?
Pedro is very jet lagged, just in from Lisbon. Erwan is probably about to eat a piece of meat. We all fell victim.
Speaking of meat, 100 grassfed steaks donated by US Wellness Meats to this great Ancestral Health Cause.
Don and his new wife both looked awesome. I talked with Don a lot and I did let him know about my beefs, a bit. But you know what? This is why the internet can never substitute for human contact. After talking with him, I’m anxious to see his presentation.
Frank is the Exuberant Animal guy and like me, is into not only how we eat and move, but how we think and how we may have been adversely conditioned.
Gary told me I should caption this something like “I met Beat at the hotel.”
There were so many others. My buddy Dr. BG is here, the Drs. Eades, Cordain, Staffan Lindberg and many more. Many more.
The feeling of privilege is really, frankly, overwhelming and I’m humbled about how so many came up and introduced themselves to me, including so many readers. I throw so much shit at my own blog because I feel like it sometimes and there seems to be a whole group of folks who get that about me.
Singing off at 3:30 am.
