Move it



















The brain and the body
are knotted with scar tissue
fat cells, varicose veins,
scrambled metabolism,
slack muscles, and
mental sludge.
Limber up! I say to
myself, dragging soul and
flesh to the point of willingness.
The brain is agile, but the
body is stove up with neglect
and inactivity.
Feeling old, but it doesn't
have to be this way!

  2. Wow, true, that's some limber woman whose picture you have up there :) Agile brain with body not up to scratch. Sigh, rings a bell :)
