July 2017

Tom Swift - Untethered Dog - Sun, 07/09/2017 - 2:14pm

9 Sunday
– Being in a new space, an old place, with people you’ve never met who shake your hands like they are familiar friends, and a new friend know is happy to see you by the light that goes off in her eyes the moment those eyes land on you, by surprise, and then she greets you right there, in front of everyone, the whole congregation, even though she’s leading the proceedings and has more important things to do.
– Prescient remarks.
– Country roads on summer days.
– Deciding at the last minute.
– A moment of unexpected peace that sneaks up on you.

7 Friday
– Living proof that you are stronger than ever.
– Good friends that come back.
– Being the fastest. And so winning a small prize.
– The healing power of art.

6 Thursday
Working at a place where they ask you to take time to do a Gratitude Journal (of sorts).

5 Wednesday
The strength, not just the calmness but also the strength, that comes from a deep breath.

4 Tuesday
– Wine with a wine chaser.
– Being up in the middle of the night. Outside. At the desk. In the kitchen. Wherever! It’s summer.
– America. Even during trying times.

3 Monday
– Working knowing you won’t be tomorrow.
– Partner workouts … while carrying more than your share of the load … yet being pushed all the same.

2 Sunday
– Running into a friend at the coffeeshop.
– Slowly sipping coffee.
– Cooled-off coffee. Yes, really.
– The calming effect of books.

1 Saturday
– Canada.
– Coffee.
– Saucy Saturday workouts.
– Running errands with the little buddy in tow.
– Summer days.
– Summer nights.

Commitment

Tom Swift - Untethered Dog - Sun, 07/09/2017 - 8:14am

Unless we fully give ourselves over to our endeavors, we are hallow, superficial people and we never develop our natural gifts. We’ve all known people who, like monkeys, mimic whatever seems novel and flashy at the moment. But then their enthusiasm and efforts wane; they drop their projects as soon as they become too familiar or demanding. A half-hearted spirit has no power. Tentative efforts lead to tentative outcomes.

-Epictetus, Manual for Living (1994, Sharon Lebell translation)

Self-Respect

Bunk Moreland: “So, you’re my eyeball witness, huh?”

Omar nods.

Bunk: “So, why’d you step up on this?”

Omar: “Bird triflin’, basically. Kill an everyday workin’ man and all. I mean, I do some dirt, too, but I ain’t never put my gun on nobody that wasn’t in the game.”

Bunk: “A man must have a code.”

Omar: “Oh, no doubt.”

Photo album: testing Welch Village’s new lift-served gravity flow trails

Mountain Bike Geezer - Sat, 07/08/2017 - 12:52pm

Last week, Welch Village General Manager Peter Zotalis hosted two test sessions for two of their lift-served gravity flow trails (total four to be built). I was there for both days, and got to ride with two experienced local guys, Clay Haglund (MAMB) and Jason Decoux (CROCT).

Grand Opening is July 29. They expect to be open one or two weekends prior. I’ll be teaching beginner-level downhill clinics (for experienced XC riders who are new to bike parks) there soon.  Watch for details on the Welch Village Facebook Page and on General Manager Peter Zotalis’ blog.

See the album of 20 photos:

Sleep softly my old love
my beauty in the dark
night is a dream we have
as you know as you know

night is a dream you know
an old love in the dark
around you as you go
without end as you know

in the night where you go
sleep softly my old love
without end in the dark
in the love that you know

Now Available: Aeschylus, Oresteia: An Adaptation

Rob Hardy - Rough Draft - Fri, 07/07/2017 - 3:56pm
Now available from Hero Now Theatre: Aeschylus, Oresteia: An Adaptation by Rob Hardy. Paperback. 72pp. $16.95

In his adaptation of Aeschylus's classic drama, first performed at Carleton College’s Weitz Center Theater in May 2012, Rob Hardy delivers the essence of this famous trilogy in a single play that speaks forcefully to today’s audiences. 
In lean, lyrical poetry, Hardy’s Aeschylus highlights all the glory of the original, including epic tales of lust, war, family strife, and revenge; choruses that echo the religious influences behind Greek drama; and Aeschylus's pride in Athenian law, philosophy, and oratory. 
In his Oresteia Aeschylus gave Athenians reason to believe that institutionalized justice, not revenge, would tame the savagery of human beings. His message resonates in our time, and Hardy’s accessible adaptation is a steadfast modern guide to this ancient wisdom. 
“A heady bouquet of new wine drawn from an old wineskin.” —Eric Dugdale (Gustavus Adolphus College), reviewing the 2012 Carleton College production in Didaskalia: The Journal for Ancient Performance 
The book comes with an introduction by Professor of Classics (Emeritus) Thomas Van Nortwick, of Oberlin College, describing the political, social, and aesthetic context of the trilogy, and offering high praise for Hardy’s adept, graceful adaptation. Hardy has added numerous explanatory notes to help the non-specialist with unfamiliar names and concepts, and a map shows the location of important place-names mentioned in the play.
