Physical Illness

Nietzsche talked about how physical illness can produce spiritual highs in 'Human, All Too Human.' This is the original source of the following phrase: "If it doesn't kill you it will make you stronger."

This week I had a head cold. Nothing serious, just enough to trip me up so that I lost my normal stride. When this happens you can not fulfil your habits. I was forced onto my back.

I didn't have the energy to write. Just to think and reflect upon how things are going.

I have decided to make a few small changes. I will start back to the gym and take more control over what I eat. I will miss the food but this body is the temple of great thoughts!

It's time to recover.
