This Sunday the 29th we'll be taking the train (/portaging?) our way to #Stratford for the #appetiteforwords festival with @digiwriting! Join us for a literary lunch prepared by @mercer_hall_inn and a "How to Write a Cookbook" workshop later that afternoon (link in profile for more info). See you there? 🛶
if you think that rain is a bad sign
indicating the darkest colour of your luck,
you of course need an umbrella.
remember, life is like rain.
the heavier the rain,
the harder the trials you should encounter.
but they are never out of your ability.
they are out of the ability of your umbrella.
your umbrella can hold certain mass and pressure
that the clouds pour within the rain
try to lift and set down each of your foot in turn.
you are the one that can walk under the pouring;
enduring the unlimited pressure and dense
that the rain brings.
it's not about how powerful the umbrella,
its about how strong the spirit inside you.
you're born to die.
but choices and challenges come in between.

I just sat in the same room that William Shakespeare studied and acted in. He was pulled from school, because his father and mayor of Stratford at the time, John Shakespeare, got into a scandal for not paying taxes. That didn't stop William and the rest was history!! #williamshakespeare#stratford#stratfordofavon
Onwards and upwards with this fitness game. I’ve never struggled with motivation to train, but since beginning to learn calisthenics a year ago I’m hungrier than ever. Skill acquisition gives you purpose and goals outside of aesthetics - which serve as excellent long term motivation. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖
