I love the simple things in life more and more these days.
Running (sometimes very very far), sunshine, snowflakes, warm sand, swimming, mountain climbing, tickling my wife & kids, kissing, sitting by a fireplace, climbing apple trees, resting in my hammock, watching birds fly, fine fruit, fall foliage, clean air and sound sleep.

Please describe your current diet (e.g. 811RV, Fruitarian, LFRV, raw vegan, vegan, vegetarian, transitioning from SAD), how stable it is, and how long you have been eating this way.
I call my diet Fruitarianism, which I define as raw fruit being the vast majority of my caloric intake. I have been eating this way since January 2008.
Please describe the type and level of physical exercise that you follow.
I am an accomplished runner, ultra runner, triathlete, mountain climber and more. I consider myself an endurance specialist. I've run a mile in 4:36 and run 100 miles in 13 hours, with many other distances and time performances inbetween.
My favorite food (fruit!) is...
Any fruit that is peak ripeness. I particularly like papayas, oranges, tomatoes, cucumbers, figs, pomograntes, rambutans, satsuma clementines
My greatest passion and goal in life is...
Experience all that life has to offer, to explore endlessly and enjoy the journey.
Are you coming to the festival with your family/partner/kids? What festival years are you attending?
I will be coming with my wife Victoria and our 3 children: Sam 11, Nancy 10, Charlotte 6
What are your hopes and expectations about this festival? What do you anticipate the most?
To enjoy seeing the snowball grow larger and larger - I hope we all work together to get it rolling fast! It's time we let the rest of the world know what we all stumbled on!
Thanks Michael! I'm so excited to come to the festival and be totally inspired by the awesome people and events! I'm surprising my husband because he doesn't know we're going yet...it's my anniversary gift to him and we both will be doing the wff marathon! Thanks for being such an incredible role model and leader!
Thanks for the warm greetings, Mike! (Though after watching your last video, it seems all of your greetings will be warm, in Hawaii.) It's always a pleasure to see a role model leading from the front. You certainly are inspirational for me on many levels.
I look forward with joy to another run this year. =)
Michael - Went to your website. Awesome PRs. I will have to train harder and look forward to running with you and other super athletes at the upcoming WFF
Secondly, thanks for your comment.
Quoting the Essene Gospel is a passion - to promote a global mind shift toward a life-centered vision of nature This can help us all stop destroying nature and engendering health pandemics. For me this Essene view wins the "marathon of mind treks." I came to a similar conclusion that living things, not machines, model nature's soul; and that at the core of living nature is what we call "consciousness" or awareness and at the further core of this gift of "consciousness" that all living things share is a pure, universal, cosmic relationship of connection. It makes nature One for me, not mathematics. All plants decay to form the building materials of all other plants in a compost heap. But add math-designed chemicals and the circle of unity is broken. This living view guides my organic healing practices, my diet, my exercises, my meditations, my relationships, my detoxes, my everything... It gives insights on how to pull my body together as One, my spirit as One. The Essenes miraculously knew all this thousands of years ago...how awesome... and perhaps just by looking at the solar radiance of each others eyes!They expressed this poetically with angelic language. Not surprisingly, we develop a biblical concept of God or other intuitions of cosmic Oneness just by being alive and conscious. Fortunately for me, I healed myself through such transpersonal insights. They turned around my life that before was floundering.. leading me on a fast-track loving view that I love to share. See ya at WFF ....
It was a great adventure! I was able to kick a lot of bad habits at once. I'm glad i did it, it really jump-started my journey into raw foods because going into it I had no knowledge of eating an all raw diet so I had a lot of down time to learn a lot about how to approach this new lifestyle change.
