...to get the ole motivation juices rolling...
Had a terrific 3 mile run this morning down the Comm Ave Mall.
It was dry and cool and sunny but not too bright with a slight breeze.
This is the fastest non-stop 3-mile run I've had so far since coming back from injury a couple months ago. Interestingly enough, before I ran, I had a headache - right above my right eye. During the run, the headache went away. After the run, it is back. What is it with the blasted headache??? It's one of those PIA, low-grade, constant things.
Joseph amazes me. He went into the bowels of the basement this morning after breakfast and then he submerges - covered in dirt and dust and whatever else. All I know is that I go down and he has started working on the wine cellar part of the basement. He's built shelves, put in shelves, and the wines are all lined up nice and neat... amazing. The next project is going to be an computrainer room - two bikes side by side, lined up on the cyclops trainers with a TV. Eventually, we will get a computrainer
Not a lot going on. The usual errands to the grocery store and stuff today while Joseph worked in the basement. And of course, there is Voyeur TV - watching the pain and suffering from The Aftermath, ad nauseum. We'll eat dinner early and maybe watch a movie.
Tonight's dinner is chicken in spicy Korean sauce, braised and baked in the oven, Stove Top Stuffing (yum) and steamed broccoli. We need to eat well tonight - tomorrow is our long run.Hurricane Note.
I am devoid of comment. I don't know what to think. My perspective is a little different from all that's been already said - it's not that I disagree, I take it all in and I think about it from a religious perspective that is based on the teachings of Buddha and Confucius. And in the here and now, Jesus might have said similar things.
I don't know. Like I said, I don't know what to think. I am still processing the blame and the call to accountabilities and yet, each and every single one of have (and had) the ability to affect the fabric of what happened. That is what I've been taught, and that is what I believe. And so, I also am not without fault.
The various issues of uncaring, of things that might have been and have been, the cause and effect, the decisions we all make and others have made, converged at that the eye of this hurricane to bring us where we are today.
The only thing that I know is that I hope this is a lesson to all of us - all the people of the world - to see the cause and effect, to see how one's actions or inactions, have a rippling effect that can tie together events that seemingly have no relationship whatsoever, and to understand the universality of hope and faith, and that we are all the same - all of us.
But I have a strange feeling that not much will change. Not at all.Exercise Note:Running:
