The head of a company survived 9/11 because
His son started kindergarten.
Another fellow was alive because it was
His turn to bring donuts.
One woman was late because her
Alarm clock didn’t go off in time.
One was late because of being stuck on the NJ Turnpike
Because of an auto accident.
One of them
Missed his bus.
One spilled food on her clothes and had to take
Time to change.
Car wouldn’t start.
Get a taxi.
The one that struck me was the man
Who put on a new pair of shoes that morning,
Took the various means to get to work but before.
He got there, he developed a blister on his foot.
He stopped at a drugstore to buy a Band-Aid.
That is why he is alive today..
Now when I am
Stuck in traffic,
Miss an elevator,
Turn back to answer a ringing telephone…
All the little things that annoy me,
I think to myself,
This is exactly where
I’m meant to be
At this very moment
California-born Mirai Nagasu (top, left) finished third at the US figure skating nationals over the weekend — yet failed to make the US Olympic team heading to the Sochi Games in Russia next month, in favour of German-born Ashley Wagner (top, right), who finished in fourth place behind Nagasu after botching both her short and long programs, falling twice during her free skate. Selecting the fourth place finisher over the bronze medalist is a "significant deviation from precedent". According to the New York Times, Wagner is more “marketable”: “With Lindsey Vonn out of the skiing competition with an injury, an absent Wagner would have left the United States without another visible star and medal hopeful.” Which is odd, seeing that Nagasu actually competed at the Vancouver Olymipcs in 2010 at age 16 and finished fourth overall, definitely positioning herself as a future medal hopeful and the only US contender with Olympic experience. In any case, the US will be sending three blonde women to the Sochi games, while Nagasu will have to watch on TV.
This is awful.
Start lying on the back. Hug the knees into the chest while the pressing the low back into the mat. Bring the arms to the insides of the legs and grab the outsides of the feet. Continue to press the low back down, as the soles of the feet point towards the ceiling. Flex the feet and keep pulling them down, trying to release the knees to the sides of the waist. Stay, taking 3 steady breaths. Try rocking gently side to side to massage the low back.
