The weight of myth --- Day 2/73

Walk: Mindful Body
Distance: 10 blocks and teach yoga class

A friend sent this, a quote from JFK.

The great enemy of the truth is very often not the lie--deliberate, contrived and dishonest--but the myth--persistent, persuasive and unrealistic.  Too often we hold fast to the cliches of our forebears.  We subject all facts to a prefabricated set of interpretations.  We enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.
Seemed to have relevance today (and others) when holding my own small decisions/life choices up for consideration.  Hard not to bring past mores to bear instead of acknowledging the truth - which is this is new, there aren't rules, we figure much out as we go these days.

So, again...
