The Body Series

Every man is the builder of a temple, called his body, to the god he worships, after a style purely his own, nor can he get off by hammering marble instead. We are all sculptors and painters, and our material is our own flesh and blood and bones.
-Henry David Thoreau

These past several days have been a pleasant holiday break for me. I have rested a great deal; however, like many people on Thanksgiving weekend, I worked my digestive system quite hard: big meals, desserts galore, late night snacks and more desserts.

It was great to spend time with family and relax, but now, my body is not feeling too great. So, this week, I am writing a series on the body in hopes of helping those of us who have abused our bodies recently to make peace with our bodies.

Due to my holiday break, I did not have time to offer a complete post, so I am linking back to two posts I had written previously which will kick off this series:

About the author


I am Danny Kohn, writer and designer for this site and owner, software engineer and consultant for Inspirations Software Design. My three greatest passions in life are sharing time with my family, software design and sharing inspiration with others. I have the incredible privilege of being able to spend a significant amount of time every day doing each of those three things. I am a single father of Tristen, our 6 year old son. It has been such an incredible joy to watch him grow up and learn so much. Everything he does and says overwhelms me with adoration. We have a wonderful evening ritual of reading books together in a beanbag chair. Nearly every night, we have a laughing attack together. I smile and giggle constantly in his presence and feel truly inspired.
