    Regarding your words “the movements we make in our lives, day to day and moment to moment,” did you know that the word moment (Latin momentum) arose as a shortened version of the word movement (a presumed Latin movimentum)? So moment, momentum, and movement are all shades of the same word.

    I’m pleased to see a blog that is not only thoughtful but also literate.
