Time is like a river, a tumultuous torrent of events coming into being. As soon as one thing appears, it is swept off and vanishes. In its place comes something else, and that too is already disappearing.

– Marcus Aurelius, Meditations, Book IV, 43

This week‘s treadmill show is… Uncoupled

Happy birthday to Claudius, born 1st August 10 BC. An unlikely ruler uniquely placed in time, he probably met every Roman emperor from Augustus to Nerva (twelve, including himself). As well as having physical infirmities, Claudius was born, perhaps inauspiciously, on the 20th anniversary of his grandfather Mark Antony’s suicide. (via @OptimoPrincipi)
