But you should keep the juices flowing by jangling around gently as you move.
Satchel Paige said that. He is best known for his comment about not looking back, because something may be gaining on you.
But that was only one of several suggestions Satchel made on how to stay young and healthy. He also listed this piece of advice, which is my favorite.
Keep the juices flowing by jangling around gently as you move.
It's my goal for 2013. Not a resolution. Just a way of moving in the world, balanced between energetic action and relaxed inertia. Don't sit all day, get moving, stay loose, but stay active.
This year I am going to remember to do that. Just as soon as the sun moves and I have to get up out of this chair and find another sunny spot to snooze in.
