Workout Week 17 - Elements

“Move swift as the Wind and closely-formed as the Wood. Attack like the Fire and be still as the Mountain.”  ― Sun TzuThe Art of War

This week we are getting conceptual again. I've been reading a little bit about the classical elements and there is much to be mined there. Generally I think of the four elements as earth, air, fire and water but the nomenclature varies by culture and  talk of a fifth element, whether it be chi or void or sky/heaven (that which cannot described by the first four) is also a recurring theme...

Your workout is to create a mosaic somehow related to one or all of the classical elements, or, develop/explore your own set of important life elements.

“All four elements were happening in equal measure - the cuisine, the wine, the service, and the overall ambience. It taught me that dining could happen at a spiritual level.” ― Charlie Trotter
