It’s Thursday, and I need a double shot of Respite after the events of yesterday. Maybe you do too?
So today—thanks to friend and Respiteer Amanda—I bring you the breathtaking movements of former competitive figure skater Elladj Baldé.
First, a two-minute ode to his relationship to ice, shot on a lake west of Calgary. Here’s part 1…
And here’s part 2.
And now, he leaves us with a jolt of joy and James Brown.
