Funny -- interesting funny, not ha-ha funny -- that one of the things I've been working on during the last year is identifying places where, in fact, I do resist gravity, push against the ground, and brace my body. It's wholly unnecessary and counterproductive to do so, to be sure, but there it is, again and again, and I wonder that there are so many things to unlearn.....
