Tanzanian bumper sticker, circa 2004

Walking around Green Lake today, I spotted a man shadow boxing under a canopy of trees, his hips swiveling as he rolled onto the ball of his foot to turn his trunk with jabs and punches. A fighter practices duck and cover, advance and retreat, evade and yield. Useful drills for self defense, but equally good practice in the art of living.

Forward or backward; we all get to choose.
