鈥淭he three antelope look at me like they know exactly what we鈥檙e proposing, and they鈥檙e not theleast bit worried,鈥?Scott continues. It didn鈥檛 take him long to find out why they were so calm in theface of what should have been impending death. Instead of flopping over in exhaustion, theantelope pulled a shell game; when they got winded, they circled back and hid in the herd, leavingDavid and Scott no idea which antelopes were tired and which were fresh. 鈥淭hey blend and flowand change positions,鈥?Scott says. 鈥淭here are no individuals, but this mass that moves across thedesert like a pool of mercury on a glass table.鈥? But Chase Chen got it. His artist鈥檚 eye also spotted the quiet intensity in the aftermaths ofHurricane Ted. Chase鈥檚 specialty, after all, was 鈥渢he dramatic dance between sunlight andshadow,鈥?and brother, was dramatic dancing ever Ted to a tee. What fascinated Chase wasn鈥檛action, but anticipation; not the ballerina鈥檚 leap, but the instant before takeoff when her strength iscoiled and anything is possible. He could see the same thing during Ted鈥檚 quiet moments, the samesimmering power and unlimited possibility, and that鈥檚 when Chase reached for his sketch pad. Foryears, Chase would use Ted as a model; some of his finest works, in fact, are portraits of Ted, Lisa,and their incandescently lovely daughter, Ona. Chase was so entranced by the world as reflectedby Ted that he released an entire book with nothing but portraits of Ted and his family: Ted andOna cooped up in the old Beetle 鈥?Ona buried in a book 鈥?Lisa glancing over her shoulder atOna, the living product of her father鈥檚 sunlight and shadow. Deena got it, and couldn鈥檛 wait to start. Coach Vigil believed you had to become a strong personbefore you could become a strong runner. So how could she lose? Grudgingly, Coach Vigildecided to give her a chance. In 1996, he began putting her through his Tarahumara-tinged trainingsystem. Within a year, the aspiring baker was on her way to becoming one of the greatest distancerunners in American history. 日本熟妇色在线视频 日本视频网站www色 日本视频高清免费观看 And the worst part? Ted holding his breath was actually Ted at his best. In a way, that鈥檚 even whatattracted Lisa, the woman who鈥檇 become his wife. They were roommates in the group house, butbecause Lisa was a bouncer at a heavy-metal bar and only got home at 3 a.m., her exposure to Tedwas limited to the dry-land version of the bottom of the pool: after work, she鈥檇 come home to findTed sitting quietly at the kitchen table, eating rice and beans with his nose buried in Frenchphilosophy. His stamina and intelligence were already legendary among his roommates; Ted couldpaint all morning, skateboard all afternoon, and memorize Japanese verbs all night. He鈥檇 fix Lisa ahot plate of beans, and then, with his manic motor finally running down, he鈥檇 stop performing andlet her talk. Every once in a while, he鈥檇 chip in a sensitive insight, then encourage her to go on. Magic bullet? The last time a scientist with Dr. Lieberman鈥檚 credentials used that term, he鈥檇 justcreated penicillin. Dr. Lieberman knew it, and meant it. If running shoes never existed, he wassaying, more people would be running. If more people ran, fewer would be dying of degenerativeheart disease, sudden cardiac arrest, hypertension, blocked arteries, diabetes, and most other deadlyailments of the Western world. The time occupied in this editorial work was extremely well employed in respect to my own improvement. The "Rationale of judicial Evidence" is one of the richest in matter of all Bentham's productions. The theory of evidence being in itself one of the most important of his subjects, and ramifying into most of the others, the book contains, very fully developed, a great proportion of all his best thoughts: while, among more special things, it comprises the most elaborate exposure of the vices and defects of English law, as it then was, which is to be found in his works; not confined to the law of evidence, but including, by way of illustrative episode, the entire procedure or practice of Westminster Hall. The direct knowledge, therefore, which I obtained from the book, and which was imprinted upon me much more thoroughly than it could have been by mere reading, was itself no small acquisition. But this occupation did for me what might seem less to be expected; it gave a great start to my powers of composition. Everything which I wrote subsequently to this editorial employment, was markedly superior to anything that I had written before it. Bentham's later style, as the world knows, was heavy and cumbersome, from the excess of a good quality, the love of precision, which made him introduce clause within clause into the heart of every sentence, that the reader might receive into his mind all the modifications and qualifications simultaneously with the main proposition: and the habit grew on him until his sentences became, to those not accustomed to them, most laborious reading. But his earlier style, that of the Fragment on Government, Plan of a judicial Establishment, &c., is a model of liveliness and ease combined with fulness of matter, scarcely ever surpassed: and of this earlier style there were many striking specimens in the manuscripts on Evidence, all of which I endeavoured to preserve. So long a course of this admirable writing had a considerable effect upon my own; and I added to it by the assiduous reading of other writers, both French and English, who combined, in a remarkable degree, ease with force, such as Goldsmith, Fielding, Pascal, Voltaire, and Courier. Through these influences my writing lost the jejuneness of my early compositions; the bones and cartilages began to clothe themselves with flesh, and the style became, at times, lively and almost light.
