Physical Activity

Physical activity is another January resolution type theme that may well prove the adage”those who play together, stay together”. If I were one of the lucky few who’ve found their lives’ work side by side in physical labor of their choice, I would consider myself blessed. This was my experience  for a time; until my fisherman ex-husband decided there were many more “fish in the sea” to catch. Having since worked on land in both farm and garden, I’d still prefer any similar scenario that provides excercise thru daily life chores over gym workouts. Exhilirating sports involvements can fade with age as risking injury drops lower on one’s list of priorities. Combining safer excercise with pleasures such as social dancing or meditative movement forms often becomes more enticing. I find such rhythmic activity soothing, even rowing, but as in golf, acquiring accessories of a sport have to be within your financial spectrum. For those who immediately wondered “What about sex?” at the mention of soothing rhythmic activity: I’m saving that subject for Valentine’s week and “Romance”.:)Since we’re all capable of choosing solo activities if our partner has different preferences, it seems conflict would be more likely to crop up in how we manage our non-physical (or “couch potatoe”) hours. We all know that avoiding clashing tastes in music, TV shows,online activities etc. can add up to more time spent together instead of in separate rooms. Certainly if the day/night’s work has already been spent apart it makes sense to have some idea of whether visions of “down time” mesh.My guess is that those who are still whistling (or humming) a happy tune while surveying shared space from a favorite reclining furniture piece probably both had a hand in completeing all the less pleasant necessary chores together first. 🙂


About dreamingmoon

I, Aurora Dreaming Moon am a Dreamer, Sister, Lover, Mother, Grandmother and sometime Writer, Poet, Artist, Musician...who at the age of 11 made my first conscious choice to seek the path of Truth by throwing a yarrow stick reading for my youthfully petulant demand of : "Tell me the purpose of life now or I'm out of here !" The spirits in all their wisdom and humour responded in kind with the complete changing hexagram : Ch'ien to K'un which I interpreted to mean "...a complete understanding of the universe ". Thus appropriately chastised, though laughingly mollified and defeated in my attempt at an easy way out, I was lovingly set back on this never ending journey we call life. I am still trying to accomplish my assignment :) What you'll find in these blogs are just sharings of some of my most heartfelt experiences along the way. May they be of service to all reader pilgrims who cross this path.

    Although I’d still consider myself blessed to find my life’s work in physical labor side by side with a life partner, at this point that work may turn out to be not so physical ! However having to redirect later life physical exertion more into just the playtime and less of the work time is not such a bad limitation. I can still think of many ways play can be part of work without physical exertion and lots more avenues to explore in multiple combinations of both 🙂
