Marco Polo describes a bridge, stone by stone. “But which is the stone that supports the bridge?” Kublai Khan asks. “The bridge is not supported by one stone or another,” Marco answers, “but by the line of the arch that they form.” Kublai Khan remains silent, reflecting. Then he adds: “Why do you speak to me of the […]
Back in my days, there weren’t any Fo-Go’s (Face-Off/Get-Off) types. It was real man-style. If you faced off, you stayed on to play offense and/or defense… and transition.
