The Secret to a Long Life

My grandmother used to say she’d earned every wrinkle. Coming across this video I am reminded of her. Watching it feels like a meditation, and a celebration of every wrinkle, every age spot, every memory stored in the body, every sorrow and every joy.

Life. Movement. Breath.

  1. I actually sit and watched that and it was a good reminder of how I never take enough time to just SIT, for starters, and also to stretch. My husband’s grandmother is 92 and so sharp and agile and still living a full life. She has always walked every single day and eaten small portions. I wish I could pretend those things (and the stretching) didn’t matter, but we know that it does.
