“Wish not so much to live long as to live well.”

– quoted from a “Maxim” for August 1738 in Poor Richard’s Almanack by “Richard Saunders” and “Bridget Saunders” (a. k. a. Benjamin Franklin)

Today is the anniversary of the birth of Benjamin Franklin (born today in 1706, when going by the Gregorian calendar) and Sebastian Junger (born in 1962, give or take 10 miles from Benjamin Franklin’s birthplace).

Click here for my 2020 post about how the work of both men are worth considering when it comes to living well.

Please join me today (Tuesday, January 17th) at 12:00 PM or 7:15 PM for a yoga practice on Zoom. You can use the link from the “Class Schedules” calendar if you run into any problems checking into the class. You can request an audio recording of this practice via a comment below or (for a slightly faster reply) you can email me at myra (at) ajoyfulpractice.com.

Tuesday’s playlist is available on YouTube and Spotify.

“If you want to make a society work, then you don’t keep underscoring the places where you’re different—you underscore your shared humanity….”

– quoted from Tribe: On Homecoming and Belonging by Sebastian Junger
