Was a pretty tough week this past week, maybe longer. Woke up one day with no vision in my shooting eye. The jury on this one is still out but apparently the sun also rises as does the moon set and the days pass by, indifferent to my meager time here. But, if I greet every day with what I’ve got, blurry eye and fearful of not doing what I do, if I just lace up and light out for a time, everything will be in its place. I will do everything I know how to do going forward, I will learn what I need to know to keep at what I do; I will stay steady in the wind. The list of people in “my” boat got shorter this week; the ones who needed me to help them help me are no longer on the list. There just ain’t time for me to pull your weight, to soothe your fears of your own inadequacies. Your life matters too. Live in it, work it, get stronger. To some others I said “Have my back, I have yours”. Back to basics for me. Eat clean, play fair, get out and run everyday.
And then sometimes, when you think nobody’s lookin’, you cry.
