Power of the Human Form

125 mph serves @ Arthur Ashe stadium. Watching a battle between finesse (Gasquet) and power (Ferrer). Which is more important? As a dancer, I used power when I was young and learned finesse when I was not so young…

    The human body is truly a work of art in itself. I think the Romans and Divinci definitely proved that throughout our history. Everyday we take for granted the awesome evolution of our bodies to adapt and fight off deadly diseases. I believe if you spend your time capturing the physical elements of the human body in motion and you study it, that you will have a greater appreciation for life itself.

      Absolutely! Thanks for the great comment! The Greeks began classical art by modeling their images of the gods after perfect human form. Perhaps obsession with perfection goes too far sometimes, but awareness and appreciation of life is so important. We would be a much healthier society if we had more body awareness. That is exactly what I would like to facilitate through a combination of fitness and art. Right on, great philosophy!
