acting out: cardiac arrhythmias

Maybe only medical personnel or people, like myself, who've experienced cardiac arrhythmia will appreciate this professor. His body movements mirror exactly what my heart has sometimes felt like in my chest. I'm astounded at how well coordinated and imaginative he is. Try to do just one of these movements. I can't. (But I know I've got no coordination.) The best touch is the lab coat. It wouldn't be as funny if he were in a black leotard.

And here's a wee avalanche I saw on a hike in British Columbia a few years ago. The disruption--very small in the gigantic landscape, nevertheless a disruption--also mirrors what my heart sometimes feels like.
