It’s astounding when you stop to consider the revolution that social media has spawned. We organize our lives differently now compared to a mere five years ago. Our sources of information have profoundly changed. How we relate to peers, loved ones and strangers is unique as compared to any other time in human history. And, […]

I despise road trips. DESPISE them. Why? Oh let me count the ways: As an absolute freak about alignment and how I position my body, I obsess about the awful ways my body is crunched in the car. I get motion sick easily. I mean, like, on elevators. I’ve had the paramedics called on me […]

This week’s art installment comes courtesy of my five-year old, M. These are my kind of snowflakes because I can enjoy without any of the side effects that cold weather brings. Surely I am not the only one feeling like she needs to unfurl her body after cold, icy, snowy, or illness-filled days? My friends in […]

Remember my post “X+Y = Wellness?” In it, I asked: When did this become our dominant paradigm? cardiovascular capacity = fitness = wellness And, I concluded: I’m not saying people shouldn’t run, or cycle, or do things to enjoy their bodies.  What I am saying is that what we need is a profound, profound paradigm shift away […]
