Get Moving

“I realized that – in spite of all the risks involved – a thing in motion will always be better than a thing at rest; that that which is static will degenerate and decay, turn to ash, while that which is in motion is able to last for all eternity.” – Olga Tokarczuk, Flights You don’tContinue reading “Get Moving”

You’re not stuck. You’re just not moving. It’s a choice. We know that physical movement is essential for a healthy life.

Stranger in a Strange Land

“Traveller, the path is your tracks And nothing more. Traveller, there is no path The path is made by walking. By walking you make a path And turning, you look back At a way you will never tread again Traveller, there is no road Only wakes in the sea.” Antonio Machado Being in transition feelsContinue reading “Stranger in a Strange Land”
