humans are either incredibly stupid or incredibly brave. life is proving to be difficult and still we are persistent in getting through the day, the week, the month, the years. along the way we win and we lose.
i am on the edge despite knowing that nothing stays the same and that eventually, nature, God, what have you…takes back what is given. it’s tough to reconcile this and get through a busy work day where your feet ache or tackle well overdue chores at home, or run the required 16 miler on your training schedule.
sometimes, i think we’ve gone too far having to multi-task our emotions. this is where the pint of ben &jerrys for breakfast comes in, or that cigarette you haven’t had in 7 years, or the 9th beer, or that little toke, or that medium sized pizza, or that late night booty-call…
i’m a little run down. it’s 11:48PM. i’ve slept about 10 hours today. i just finished having dinner. i’m required to run 12 miles tomorrow. i ate a pint of ben & jerrys for breakfast. i’m drowning myself in The National songs.
next week i and my eldest brother will go with Mom to the doctor so that they can figure out how to deal with the brain aneurysm she has.
it takes an ocean not to break…
