Finding My Quiet Place

Dec 12, 2020

After a 2-hour, 100-mile, early morning motorcycle ride, I sat with Cristina Romagnoli at a pavilion by Lake Apopka and talk with her about how she quiets her mind, and finds mental stillness.

Cristina works in the health care industry as a physical therapist for cancer patients, this year has been particularly difficult and challenging. She was transferred from the work she loves, to working exhausting 12-hour shifts in the Acute Respiratory Unit, working with Covid-19 patients.

One of the ways she finds mental focus is by getting on her 1984 Honda Nighthawk motorcycle (named “Frank”), and going for a long solitary ride in the countryside… “moving meditation” is what she calls it.
