Movement Matters in the Year Ahead

Updated: Jan 9

With Intention 

by Jan Falls 


And what will you do


with this unspent year,


these 365 never-before days


unspooling from the wheel as it turns,


neither stopping nor hurrying


despite your self-driven pace?



Will you greet each one


with heart wide open,


seeing all the beauty of this world


as well as its infinite sadness,


the madness and grief woven into


the achingly exquisite texture of a day?



Will you pause...


in your haste for each busy day to be done,


for the next special event to arrive,


so that you might taste any moment now


be it bitter, fresh, rich or bland


and let it roll across your tongue


so that you truly savour it?



Greet each new day without clinging or aversion


or worse without noticing,


bring to it your own aliveness


as intimate and near to you as your breath.



Unwrap each day as the gift it is;


be surprised with delight or with disappointment


but do not look away too long


for this one will not come to you again
