In 1972, Francis Ford Coppola made an incredible film called “The Godfather.” He followed that up with “The Godfather: Part II” in 1974. Great movie. 26 long years later, I couldn’t wait to see what I knew would be an awful movie called “The Godfather: Part III.” Aside from Andy Garcia pulling a Tyson and biting Joe Mantegna’s ear off, most of the movie was hard to watch.
However, there was one quote that has stuck with me for the last 27 years. Al Pacino (Michael Corleone) is in Italy, wracked with guilt for all he had done in his life. He is talking with a Catholic Priest, when he goes into Diabetic shock. They find Michael some orange juice, he drinks and begins to come around. The priest looks at him and says, “The mind suffers and the body cries out.”
The mind suffers and the body cries out.
Now, we’ll see what we can do about it. In June of this year, I obtained certification as a personal trainer through the American Council on Exercise. During this sabbatical time, I hope to to study, train, and explore ways we can take care of ourselves physically as well as spiritually.
