“Walking forward I feel wooden plates pressing against my skin. Soft fabric touches my arms as I slide into place. My feet are planted firmly on the ground. I lean forward and feel them slip. I arch my back. The wooden plates lift me up. At the verge of falling I push my upper legs into the wood and allow my waist to rise. My feet no longer carry my weight. Instead I reach a balance in how my legs, waist and the wooden plates support me.“
