IT'S TIME FOR A BENCH REVIEW BABY!!! Sit back, relax, grab a drink or a snack, and let me guide you through this interesting little bench.
The thing that sets this bench apart is it's location. In order to get here, you gotta take a risk, go off the beaten path for a bit and trek up the side of a hill top. But the short journey is worth it, because you will instantly notice that this bench overlooks quite a bustling area of the park, complimented by trees and skyline. It's sort of a Yin and Yang scenario sitting on this bench, you can observe and listen to the footsteps from below; the couple walking their dog, the woman on the horse, the sounds of young humans in their strollers. But the minute you allow your focus to turn away from all of that and return back to you, you notice the complete calm and serenity of the space that surrounds you. It all comes together to create a real-world art piece, your experience is subject to change depending on where you set your focus... In a more grounded sense, THIS HERE'S A PEOPLE WATCHIN' BENCH. Or it can be a spot for simple reflection. Plenty of room for two or even three people. The physical bench itself isn't the greatest in the world, and yeah the surrounding area is dry and could use more green, but it's much more about the experience beyond the physical that sets this bench apart. If you're into dogs, horses, baby's, or humans you'll like this bench. If you want to feel like a pharaoh overlooking the people, you'll like this bench. If you want a larger, simple snapshot of unbothered existence, you too will enjoy this bench.

Anybody else enjoy watching and observing people MOVE!?Today while walking back from the our pool based conditioning session, l was drawn to this soldier’s gait....to me it looks as though his legs are doing two very different things to achieve the same result.
The Left foot is abducted, possibly indicating a lack of ankle dorsiflexion. But there doesn’t seem to be much else going on (that l can see). The right foot is also abducted, but to me it’s what’s happening at the lower leg and knee and at the hip that really interests me....There seems to be a lack of dorsiflexion but this time he is landing on the lateral aspect of the foot, which requires internal rotation at the hip and leads to a subtle amount of hyperextension at the knee. This results in a limp. It’s fascinating to me that these signs didn’t come up in his @functionalmvmt
FMS, 2 weeks ago. Real food for thought.
Can anybody guess why he is currently in the Soldier rehab program?? ANSWER: Bilateral OA I’d love to hear from a podiatrist or a movement specialist on their thoughts 💭
Forever and always that creep who secretly stares at random people going by. This was probably my favorite spot at my Grandpa’s place as a kid. I could always hide behind his brick fence whenever I did it. I liked to believe nobody noticed but I’m pretty sure most people did. Years later, I don‘t have that kind of shield anymore as I creep (tbh I just directly stare at people with a blank expression these days) BUT YOU KNOW WHAT IT’S TOTALLY FINE BECAUSE NOW I AT LEAST DON’T HAVE TO STAND ON TIPTOES WHILE I DO IT ANYMORE
