Weight: 10/14/13

Weight: 169.4 lbs.

I am losing weight. I was a little over 180 lbs. 3 months back when I was moving my body against gravity at least 3 times per week.

I had to stop, twice, due to illness. I will be able to start back up soon. I am probably ready now, but for some reason have not. Talks with Rebecca Sacks reminds me of the empathetic angle; the reason I have not started back up is because it is daunting to start a movement routine, even for someone who enjoyed and understood all the benefits of such movements.

If it's hard for me, how difficult must it be for someone who has never connected with the movement of one's body?

Michael O'Malley

Michael O'Malley is an artist who concerns himself with the opportunity to foster a dialogue. He has been making pizza ovens on site across the country. 

His work is about creating experiences that foster discussion; getting people together to talk about the world. The difference between Michael and a baker is the baker wants you to buy the bread and Michael want you to come by and talk about it.

I admire Michael's work because he is concerned about empathy, agency and creating experiences.
