Abigail Adams was one of the best first ladies we have had! She endured, as her husband, and made our country better for it. Abigail Adams Rocked!

If there is no hustle and bustle, a body and mind will atrophy. So the majority of our life is made for doing, creating, thinking, building, and moving in general. Energy begets energy! The calm is for those moments to soothe the soul and be thankful.

Its like the quote - 'If you want peace, wage a war' ! [Sorry I do not know its author].

If you're not standing for something, you stand for nothing, and you'll fall over anything. If you're not moving, you're not living.

Timing is right, The Woman New Her Man, Men are Made For Action, not passive chit chat !! Action for engagement, bustle for business. Damn I like that Woman. !! The Trump Era brings out the Best in all of us. Should ?

Calm is the essence of Action sad, so much is misunderstood..

Calm is the Zen of Action.  ;-)  Cats gotta scratch and dogs gotta dog, what do humans gotta do?
