A recent study found a link between the rising rates of obesity in the US and UK and central heating, which became common in the ’60s.

This is just something I wrote today. Hope you enjoy it.
Seek not the answers in that place,
From which society pulls away at your grace,
While looking for the answers in the dark,
Unsure of the journey you should embark
Seek not the answers through the flesh,
The sheets in color and of soft mesh,
For the solutions you will find in the skin,
Will only tear your soul from within
Seek not the answers in the pages,
The experience of those felt through the ages,
For most of the wisdom you will find,
Is that of someone else’s mind
Seek answers from within the heart,
The piece that had been with you from the start,
It is the only guidance you will need,
To give you a life, one that you shall lead
