    That quote works for me. I’m getting kidded at orchestra about how slowly I go up and down stairs. I offered to just roll myself down … but no one seemed to want me to, lol.

      I have to say, I’m pretty burned out on people at work giving me a bad time about going slowly. I’d like to think they have no clue how painful it is to walk and stand; otherwise it would seem kind of mean. Although I might add, the people on the van have been super nice to me as well as my coworkers that follow this blog 🙂

    Now I can certainly appreciate this wonderful Chinese proverb, but I find since I am practically old now that being still is much more preferable to moving, particularly in the morning 🙂

    Sandy & Barb…my Popo has a walking stick. Sometimes he uses it -as he says “To knock some sense into dense minds.” He believes his walking stick has more than one use. Philosophically speaking…..I’m sure he wouldn’t hurt a fly.

    The proverb speaks deeply in so many facets of my essence, for lack of a more appropriate word, moved. In more ways than one. It it’s home in a good way and in a way I’m unable to convey in words.

    I am truly sorry when people say things that hurt and of something that is completely out of ones control. I’m sure I have made the same mistakes…I will have this moment to remind myself strive to understand, try not to judge and come from within the spirit of compassion.
