Some media on my fiction

Post by Sentient Light » Fri May 26, 2017 4:14 pm

Earlier this week, Brooklyn Magazine ran this interview with me: http://www.bkmag.com/2017/05/24/an-tran ... er-tongue/

And I got to write this short essay on my "research" process (which I think you'll find amusing) for Necessary Fiction today: http://necessaryfiction.com/blog/Resear ... therTongue

Wow! Impressive stuff!

And you're a Parkour Coach??

What would you suggest to start with for a 10 yr old who is insanely obsessed with learning how to parkour???

To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never, to forget." –Arundhati Roy

I loved this :
I don’t ever think of animals without thinking about their level of conscious or how they communicate. Animals are sentient beings. They have thoughts and feelings. If we can understand them, we can commune with another kind of conscious being.
And i never heard of this before..have only seen skateboarders do something similar :

TRUELY AMAZING ! THEY ARE LIKE NINJA'S !!

You have to have immense agility and good strength to do this. My kids love this. I am going gray really fast....

I can't imagine :crying:

Tell them when they get old they will need hip replacements, knee replacements, shoulder replacements......my soon to be son in law was a skateboarder...he lived with pain for many many years after...and finally just had a hip replacement...

People think they're immortal till 30... I can tell them a lot of things. They think they know. Especially as we get closer to teenagerhood...

Please pray for me. :rolling:

Gymnastics, as a structured approach to all the parkour skills with (hopefully) some attention to safety?
