Some things are created by big events, like these rocks, lava formations most of them, appearing to jut out from the sea like whale's fins.
Some things are created by small events, like the strengthening of the muscles in our bodies, slowly getting taut, or mushing and diminishing so much they can't support our skeleton.
In this stage of my life, I have to be conscious of my body, and I have to keep looking for opportunities to maintain whatever strength I have.
So, we walk. We push mowers. We rake and hoe.
Just last night, during each commercial, we got up and danced. Yes! Switched to a music station of our choice, and danced. Then rested and caught our breath before the next commercial.
How clever of us!
We might start a new routine in the winter of our days, a routine that might remind us of Spring.
