Uprising of the Day #2096

Brittany had a long day staring at a screen and sitting in the car. I arrived home just in time to accompany her and Pearce on a walk and, as you can see, the fresh air brought with it a new fountain of strength.

I was never very impressed by olympic athletes when I was little. The acrobatics on the uneven parallel bars seemed like a simple enough sequence of events – just swing back and forth, release and catch, no problem. Now that I have a decent mental model of weight and momentum and the like, all those feats seem so incredible, and though I’ve gained a small amount of strength from climbing, I still wish I could throw myself around so effortlessly, so weightlessly, like the people who dedicate themselves to the art.

start to regret it
