Abbey Altson painting
Take care of your body with steadfast fidelity.
The soul must see through these eyes alone,
and if they are dim, the whole world is clouded.
True enjoyment comes from
activity of the mind and exercise of the body;
the two are ever united.
There's lots of people in this world
who spend so much time watching their health
that they haven't the time to enjoy it.
Keeping your body healthy
is an expression of gratitude to the whole cosmos;
the trees, the clouds, everything.
Thich Nhat Hanh
