A start-up guide for men who are motivated to do some tumbling again but are unsure where to start. This book is also a good supplement for those who have been self-taught. It follows Jay along his journey to better tumbling while being mentored under the guise of Mircea Petrea (Chico) a retired teeter-board artist with Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey's Circus. Chico still holds the record for a double back flip off a teeter-board and onto the top of a five man high human ladder, with no equipment or netting.
At 99. Cents a pop and a Novella to follow upon completion of the series, SHIFT follows the escapades of a stranded cosmonaut aboard a life vessel lost in space. His only escape is in the Big Red Shift button, which temporarily beams his consciousness into the body of Earthlings that he picks out by reading patterns in his on-board display.
When the waveform's magnitude and period reach their threshold, a solid bar occupies the readout and our Protagonist mashes the button.
The instances he finds himself occupying are both humorous and cynical, and I describe them to you through a uniquely lyrical writing style.
Get ready to SHIFT your perception by putting yourself in someone else's shoes, by reading along while I write each episode- SHIFT.

"Gymnastics is hardcore. It is no small wonder that there are few, if any, adult gymnastics classes. Adults are heavy, stiff, and stubborn. No coach wants to throw his back out spotting a two hundred pound asshole who wants to be the next Jackie Chan or Tony Jaa. It's not safe, and it's not easy. The training equipment is expensive, and the determination, dedication, and time needed to practice makes it hard for anyone to truly measure up as a student. The payoff, however is enormous." -Jay

Yes, King Arthur pulled the sword from the stone. Yes, he brought a period of peace to Cornwall. Yes, he brought an end to religious intolerance. But, these things didn’t come at the sharpened tip of a sword, or along the battlements of castle Camelot.
They built momentum from the start, way back in the final days of Arthur’s tutelage, and contrary to popular belief, under Mott’s strong arm bearing an iron skillet. It took sacrifice, courage, and yes, a lot of muddling.
In fact, these things came to pass because veils were lifted. Both the one between the worlds, and the thicker one that people kept over their eyes. Truth be told, it was because the people finally decided to one-day open their eyes and dare to take a good look at one another’s beliefs. Once that was done, they were undeniable. Mostly because you just couldn’t argue with a huge dragon wearing blue lipstick. And, as far as faith goes, well, nobody was going to survive any of this without a lot of it.
And, legend had it, that Arthur wasn’t only a leader of the people, but of a land and country as well. The beings of nature are the land. Everyone knows, sometimes, you just have to let nature take its course. And sometimes, just sometimes, nature’s course is a three course meal. Just ask Sylvia.
