Body Worlds


Have any of you people out there heard of "Body Worlds"? It is an art exhibit that is coming to Salt Lake on Sept. 19. I am very excited. I plan to go and I can't wait.

I love the human body. Anatomy was my favorite class I have ever taken. Granted, I took it in the summer when I had no other classes to worry about, thus, I wasn't overwhelmed and had time to appreciate it.

I told the hubby about it. I got an emphatic "NO". He said to me, "You know I can't even watch ER without getting nauseous. What makes you think I could make it through that exhibit? No Way."

Hmmmmm. Dilemma. So I called the sisters and they also had seen the advertisements and want to go. I found a coupon for it in Wasatch Woman and will use that. Anyone else who is interested is invited.

Our bodies are miraculous. It is a miracle when babies are born "normal". I learned in my anatomy class that there are a million things that can go wrong during development that usually doesn't. It is amazing.

We ARE gods in embryo. We are incredible. This is one of the reasons I LOVE to watch the Olympics. Young men and women push their beautiful bodies to the limit of what human endurance can tolerate and we get to see it.

I don't think there are words that can describe how grateful I am for my body. We are temples and I will do my darnedest to keep mine in the best shape I can. It has been a struggle for me and I have a lot of habits I need to overcome and adopt, but it is possible. Almost anything is possible with our bodies if we believe and are willing to do the work!

Great post! I agree that the human body is amazing! I have to say, though, when my wife wanted to see this exhibit in Las Vegas, I had a similar reaction as your 'hubby'. I'm not sure why. Maybe it's just a little too real for me.
