Office Gymnastics?


I almost entitled this experience, "I Miss Doing Cartwheels," but though I don't do them as often as I used to (or perhaps as often as I should), I have still been known to do the odd cartwheel.  Especially on the beach.  There is something liberating about an empty beach, with the expanse of just screams, "Do a cartwheel," "Be free."

I was at work today and, as I was walking down the hall, I was overcome (almost) with the desire to do a cartwheel.  It actually happened almost every time I walked down this one particular, wide open hall....perhaps it was the double latte I had instead of my regular single...or the knowledge that I am finally working somewhere I love...whatever the reason, I resisted the urge....but I wish I hadn't had to.  All the same, the urge was nice.  It felt almost as free as if I had actually been able to throw feet to the air and just…go for it....

Cartwheels are the best! Mine may not be perfect anymore, and I may damn near pull my groin doing them, but do them I will!!!
