Just the other day, someone taught me a new term that I really love---"Semper gumby". For those of you rusty on your Latin, "semper" means "always" (as in the U.S. Marines' "Semper Fi"). Now, bringing our old friend Gumby into the picture, the notion of flexibility becomes more apparent.
Flexibility in this life is certainly an important characteristic to nurture, and one that we would all be smart to adopt in a big way. From the economy to the multifaceted nature of post-modern life, being flexible in mind and body is a way to adjust to an ever-changing world that consistently keeps us on our toes.
So, here's to flexibility of mind, body and soul, and the wisdom to cultivate that characteristic, no matter our age, rank, class, or position in life. Semper Gumby!
