In Contrast

“Put light against light – you have nothing. Put dark against dark – you have nothing. It’s the contrast of light and dark that give the other one meaning.” -Bob Ross

And here we have some contrast, of style or talent, ย you be the judge. This is a work by Asger Jorn of the Situationist movement, I think. Hey, we’re not just butts and barbells around here, nah meh? (But mostly we are…)

And here’s an interesting podcast on how we think of our current selves in contrast to our future selves and how that fucks up our decision-making skills. I believe we call that projection bias.

And in case I deterred you with the duck up there, here’s some additional contrast:

Ah contrast. I was feeling so awesome before and during the Humphrey’s hike…

The intention this week was to do some moving and see what the response was in the hip-/back-/ass-on-the-funky-side region. So, yeah, did that. Really wanting to squat, but we had a reverse “Bump N’ Grind” situation: my mind was telling me yes, but my body, my booody was telling me no! So, what can I do to work da booty (okay, and the body) that isn’t squatting? Pulled some things from the archives… And things are feeling better, but some tightness remains in the back and in the hip when in the R-Kelly position.

Every time there’s a “rest a minute between legs” in my workout, my mind puts a “my” after the preposition and the gutter brain takes it from there…

spend some time there.gif

Gonna give Oly a try tomorrow. We’ll see if I’m walking funny after…
