A particular form of gravity, that is...
Not the usual force that holds things like refrigerators, and sofas, and people and dogs in their usual grounded position,
The force that's making me leave town next week is the gravity of a story of an unusual (and awesome) athlete who will soon step onto the international platform.
I'm going to Beijing to follow the life of USA superheavyweight weightlifter Cheryl Haworth: one of history's masters in the practice of outwitting gravity.
This blog will record my experience of traveling, documenting, and engaging with forces, places, (and sometimes people) larger than myself...
I leave on August 12 - arriving Beijing on the 13th.
