The New Enthusiast’s Sun Salutation

To open each fight he officiates in the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship), referee “Big” John McCarthy checks to make sure both fighters are ready, then yells, “Let’s get it on!”

I have taken up this cry as a practice in early-morning enthusiasm—except, instead of saying it to two men endeavoring to harm each other, I yell it to the sun, the earth, all that is:

“Let’s get it on!”
