Something In Common

All my mornings start with the alarm clock
Every dream gets stopped before the end
And with each bit I remember
The more the details run together
And I'm left with a message I don't comprehend
I've lost contact with the great beyond again
- Dawes

This view never fails to inspire me when I take my evening jog. And yet I feel depressed. I think I'm depressed. It's really hard for me to get out of bed these days, and harder still to force myself out on the road. I'm tired of being alone. And I see my boy leaving more every day as he grows more mature and gains his independence, which is his right - he doesn't need his mom relying on him for company. Maybe it's that it stays dark so late in the morning now, and grows dark so early.

Someone will

I'll get drunk enough to tell you how I feel
About the men you love and how they all seem to get the best of you
Cause if I don't say these things you know someone will

If that look in your eyes as I slowly go through the evidence
Gives any insight into the void you can't get filled
Then you heart is bigger than any that I've come up against
And if nobody's loved you enough I know now someone will
- Dawes

This is a great song. Last week wasn't a good one for running - I only went twice. Saturday I just could t seem to get off the couch. Plus it was hot outside. But in back on the proverbial horse. Taking a day trip to Denver today which is quite brutal given the 5am flight, so no running likely today.

Running into the storm

This was my view as I made the turn to head home this evening. I didn't beat the rain home but it was a delicious motivator to run that last half mile.

Until I get to leavin
It's the same old me too
-Miranda Lambert, same old you

Building bridges

How's that bricklayin' coming
How's your engine running
Is that bridge getting built
Are your hands getting filled
- The Head and the Heart, Lost in My Mind

I haven't posted in awhile. Haven't been inspired enough. Either that or just been lazy. But today I had a beautiful run in Peachtree, GA, after a night of thunder and a day of pouring rains.

Is that bridge getting built?  I think so, yes. I believe I have finally stepped out of my own way. I got a good 3 miles in whilst getting a little bit lost, both literally and figuratively. I have half a year left of the balance of 44, and great things are to come. 

"Won't you tell me my brother
'Cause there are stars up above
We can start moving forward"
