Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into friend.
-Dr. Martin Luther King
I learned something interesting about St. Valentine’s Day yesterday. That like so many Christian based celebrations, it began as a pagan one. And moreover, that the underlying idea of the original Lupercalia was to clear out and make way for the new. I find this interesting because I’ve noticed how love tends to do this. I probably originally got the idea from Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., but now that it’s really taken root in my mind I am frequently seeing examples of how love paves the way for new possibilities.
This all seems apropos because of my newest project to get underway: Pilates Love Stories. Click on over to the new space and learn more about my idea. Perhaps I’m a bit of a Pollyanna, but I’ve come to see the internet as a place where some of our best stuff shines through. I’m hoping that over time this little idea of mine will blossom into something like a cyber-love-force that bolsters up a truly amazing system of exercise while at the same time eclipsing some of the dark forces that beckon us Pilates enthusiasts.
