A Gift is Arriving

By: Gabriela Yareliz One can’t help but wonder where 2021 will take us. Many of us are still tracking 2020 packages and wondering where the time went, this holiday season.

To Live Longer, Walk Slowly

“Days of slow walking are very long; they make you live longer, because you have allowed every hour, every minute, every second to breathe, to deepen, instead of filling them up by straining the joints. Hurrying means doing several things at once, and quickly: this; then that; and then something else. When you hurry, timeContinue reading “To Live Longer, Walk Slowly”
