“Flexibility is the key to stability.” – John Wooden

During uncertain times when we’re asked to constantly adapt and be flexible, it’s essential to find a sense of grounding. With a loved one unexpectedly hospitalized last week, I’d been feeling shaky on several levels. However, an outing with my son to a nearby park helped to recenter me.

Inspired by a triangular-shaped work of public art that showcases stability and extension, I formed a triangle with my body to ground my foundation while reaching toward what’s possible. It was an opportunity to breathe deeply and center myself—to remind myself that stability, flexibility and possibility can coexist.
