Should I start a progressive daily run blog? Would you read it? I’m considering this to encourage myself to get back in shape (I know, I know, my body looks fine, but I cannot say that I feel great and in shape about it) and that is why I feel the need to address my situation, because I think the feeling is mutual with others around me, especially during this time of year. Let me know what you think. I will include the run time and distance, but my thoughts will really focus on the emotions that I’m feeling before, during and after the workout. I’ve basically answered my own question, of course I would. (Should I create a page or something?) Thank you for reading. Now it’s time for my morning run #1
It’s a metaphor
what the hell is that a metaphor for
the unicorn represents us all as people
the dylan sitting on it represents our thoughts, our hopes, and our dreams
We are the unicorn, crushed by all of the things we want to do with very little time to actually do it. As we struggle to do everything, our minds make what we want seem more close than they actually are.
After trying to make our dreams come true several times, we finally give up on them and just let them sit on our shoulders, forever reminding us that we are failures.
Today is September 4th 2014. It has now been 8 years since the death of one of my greatest heroes.Steven Robert Irwin. In that time, and unlike what my comforting mother, and friends assured me, it has not become easier. In the years since his passing I have watched as animal media feed into the hands of the uneducated, sensationalist, and often even cruel TV show hosts only content in showcasing the brutality, and deadly aspects of wildlife. I have seen no one step up to the plate, no one fill that void he left in the world. Consider this an open letter, to all those as tragically in love with the natural world as I. Get out there, be loud, show your self and your love to the world, educate, experience, and just and just freaking live. We are but one species on what may be the most biodiverse planet in the universe. So get up, and make some damn noise, lose the fear, and show them what you love.
"Because people want to save, the things that they love."
We all miss you mate.
