This. 👇Finding parallels in all aspects of our "civilized" world. We aren't just outing ourselves in a cast. #Repost @nutritiousmovement with @repostapp. ・・・ Up ahead: 12 days, moving through some of the most breathtaking places in the U.S. (and the world!), to free my body and mind, to let forth the last of a few essays for an upcoming collection on #movementecology and the #natureofmovement. When I see rivers, carving the shape of the earth, it makes me think of the habit of "casting"--our bodies, other people and non-human animals, other things, like rivers. This river, if allowed to move freely, would change course over time, to distribute the result of its movement over a broader area. A dammed river creates a sort of repetitive use injury on the planet. Our "casted" culture has casted most rivers, changing how and where they move, which in turn changes the soils and plants and animals around it. So I just wonder, did we cast our bodies first and then turned our attentions to larger casting behaviors, or was it the other way around: did we try to cast the big things in nature and as a result, ended up in a cast? Or did they happen lock step, initiated by something else? These are the thoughts I have when surrounded by the results of a billion years of movement, in a body fashioned by, and maintained by, a history of movement. Anyhow, Movement Matters. At least that's the name of this book of essays. #movementmatters #MoveYourDNA #movementbasedlifestyle Recommended books on water and rivers: Cadillac Desert, The Emerald Mile.
