I got this photo from my sister Louie through email. It is a funny one. I like it for many reasons: 1. It reinforces that timing is everything, 2. I can look at the street where we grew up-- houses, yards, a familiar scene that brings up memories and 3. I can reflect on and appreciate true style-- whether it be clothing or body expression-- ya just can't beat it.
It also reminds me that I am a very physical being. I experience my world through touch and connect to people, places and things tactily. As I become more and more cerebral, I am reminded not to lose "touch" with my physical side. Increasing physicalness can take many forms: walking the stairs at work, playing in the snow, participating in tag games, doing crunches, massaging others, hugging friends, welcoming handshakes, pick up your step from place to place, stretching, etc.
It is interesting to me that I need to remind myself about what I consider my true nature. I suppose we all lose ourselves at times. Sometimes a picture or a circumstance can awaken us as we view ourselves from the outside in. Thanks Lou!
