Fighting Gravity

My life is comfortable, and it’s easy to sit down in front of the tv in the evening. Sometimes during the day I even think about the couch.  I may be judging myself, but I think I have completely given in again...

To gravity! (That is not a toast. That is a death sentence.)

It is the force that lets things fall back to the earth. The perpetual anchor that grounds me. It keeps me in position while everything around is pushing in. I feel safe in familiar surroundings because I know I’m protected against the unknown.

The opposite of gravity is motion and discovery: expanding into new territories, both in the way I think, and in moving my body again. I have got to fight gravity.
