A little less than a happy high
The grace of a kodiac
Everything I have been and everything I have done is known to me. Even if my mind refuses to remember, it is held in my body. It is a palpable energy that races for release, an other-mind that cries out with joy for its movement.

The Charles was lovely at sunset, moreso because I had ridden there. I sat for a long time watching the rowers. Northeastern Crew was out, putting a new-ish group through the paces.

Earlier, watching the marathon, I almost wanted to cry. There was something almost too beautiful and too mesmerizing in the river of bobbing heads coming down the hill towards where I was standing. The same black ink on shirts and arms, written instructions to cheer the names written there. "Go Matt!" "Alright Veena." Applause. "Yeah, Eagles!" in a mysterious surge of school pride. Later, at the barbecue, I was surprised to see "Matt" on the tv crossing the finish line. He was spent and had to be escorted to the medical tent.

He looked incredibly happy.

Current Mood: awed

I get all choked up when I watch the marathon runners too! I thought IW As just overly emotional, but I really see marathon runners as the ultimate goal achievers.

I'm just surprised I took so long to notice

Isn't it amazing? Do all marathons have this kind of energy?

Sorry I missed you on AIM earlier... I was out being bored to death. :)

No worries. Since you had been idle so long, I figured it would be a long shot anyway. Just thought I'd say hi since I was on.

And since you are on about once every 9 thousand years! :P

At night I'm an IRC junkie/Good Lord have pity on me.

Not so much any more, but there was a time...

Mostly, I don't get on so that my phone will be open. There is a sort of twisted logic there, though I could just as easily leave AIM on while I'm browsing so that folks have some way to reach me. I will think on these things.

I mean, firing it up when I log on isn't like getting sucked into a MUSH or anything.

Not that that has ever happened... much.
