About the author

Gavriel

My dad's poster had Superman holding two plates of food. One of junk food. One of healthy food. At 5 years old I couldn't quite fathom the caption "Eat to Live, Don't Live to Eat'... but I did understand the point about choice. This mindfulness of healthy choices has stayed with me ever since in all areas of my life. Beware, my optimism is infectious! Check out my experiments.

Polyphasic Sleep, Day 7 (nodding off, minor injuries and schedule disruptions)
