Learning to Walk it Off
I am not one of those who neglect the body in order to make of it a sacrificial offering for the soul, since my soul would thoroughly dislike being served in such a fashion. – Rainer Maria Rilke via Brainpickings
- American history is complex and then there’s Columbus Day as explained by The Oatmeal.
- A tree as metaphor, and info graphic, describes how European languages developed.
- Forest bathing isn’t what you think, and it’s less directed than the kind of walking that can foster creativity.
Let Me Explain
I was just in Arkansas for a week and got to hang out with the parents and experience again the Crystal Bridges Museum (the photo is a Chihuly sculpture they installed in the woods near the museum along with several other lighted Chihuly sculptures. Yep, just put them in the woods.), George Dombek’s amazing art studio, fry bread vegan tacos, Bike Rack Brewing, tour the Brightwater kitchen (Northwest Arkansas Community College culinary program), and get in some epic mountain biking that reminded what is single track riding.
It was a great week, but I always seem to get sick when I fly so I’ve pretty much been in bed for two days. Wake me before the next movie starts…
