“You have to earn an ending.”
I wrestled throughout high school and as a member of the University of Calgary Dinos. (57kg, if you can believe it). For my last book, Poets and Pahlevans: A Journey Into the Heart of Iran, I traveled to Iran to seek out the connection between Persian poetry and traditional wrestling.
And I absolutely love this:
Marcello- I need more info on Takhti. Also I need to find a copy of the poem a contemporary Persian poet wrote about him. Help me out, mate.
Marcello there’s a lot we can learn from wrestling. I was wondering if you could send me an email to talk about how much you learned from one of your coaches Bert Joines.
