I think it is about halfway through my partial fast. I think I'm okay now with not having caffeine. That is, I don't miss it and not having it doesn't have anymore negative effects, no headaches, I wake up easily enough, and so on. Now I am noticing the effect of the absence of refined sugar. I allow myself to have some on weekends between Saturday evening and Sunday evening. I am starting to see how much of an effect it has on mood and on appetite. The more sugar I eat the more sugar I want and the more food I want to eat in general the next day or so. And not drinking coffee and not eating refined sugar allows me to feel calmer. However, if anything goes wrong, I still feel like compensating with a cookie.

The collection includes art from private as well as public collections and installations, including the collections of LACMA, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum of Modern Art New York, and the New York Public Library to name just a few. I'm happy to be included.
