I don’t care much for New Year’s resolutions. I prefer making my own resolutions throughout the year, whenever I’m inspired to do so. I also have not read any Pico Iyer since completing his groundbreaking 1989 Video Night in Kathmandu: And Other Reports from the Not-so-Far East.
Iyer’s stunner article made me change my mind. It won’t take you long to read it, but I suggest that you so so. –>>Healthy Body, Unhealthy Mind – NYTimes.com.
I’m now going to try to read at least 30 books this coming year, along with 360 hours of combined walking, backpacking, and bicycling. I also updated to Strava Premium where I plan to rig up the heart rate monitor (yet again).
The slant of Iyer’s article is to redirect your cosmic magnifying glass on your own mental fitness. I am a true believer, and back that up by practicing Transcendental Meditation for one hour a day, as I have since 1970.
I shot over to Pico Iyer’s highly beautiful and inviting blog, and look forward to spending a number of hours checking out what Mr. Iyer been up to since we last broke internal ranks.
On thing for sure, I will be launching into his latest book tonight, “The Art of Stillness: Adventures in Going Nowhere.”. I just zapped it onto my Kindle.
What a world we live in!
Fitness is all around us- we even get to stumble back onto that path, whenever our resolutions take form.
