lopez fitLopez Fit, the new fitness center in my community, has been helping my strength-building efforts with its circuit training classes and equipment. My goal is to do a workout three times a week, but some days, my motivation flags. This latest post by fellow writer and Northwest Institute of Literary Arts MFA Program alum, Janet Buttenwieser, is a new source of inspiration for me. I bet her essay, “The Return of the Tri-Ostolete” will fire up others, too. And for more of Janet’s beautiful, thoughtful writing, check out Laws of Motion, recently published in the online journal, Under the Sun. Janet’s piece is the epitome of the journal’s guiding philosophy: "An essay is a short piece of prose in which the author reveals himself in relation to any subject under the sun." ~ J.B.

I’ll keep lifting, pressing, and stretching in solidarity as you train for the Team Ostomy United Triathlon in August.

Okay, this is my favorite cartoon created by MondoMedia. This is about some animals in their own community, living their lives, facing their conflicts, and die in their gruesome deaths. 122 more words
