I was never the athletic type, no. I never thought of martial arts as an 'athletic'
activity...maybe all the unintentional brain washing of popular media in America as
it covers baseball, basketball and American 'football'.
Recently, finding myself with feelings of 'wanting more' out of life, I got seduced
into the notion of rollerblades and running. Not sure why, how nor when this feeling
came over me. It wasn't something I think about as a person who works in the visual
*ponder* Maybe it was a tv show. Maybe it was an episode in which the two
characters ran around in order to save the day.
As an artist. As a thinker, most of the time. As a person with a less physical
lifestyle (I do bike 5miles a day when it's summer). As someone who is only 5'10" of
medium build, medium weight & a less-than-athletic life style, I can see the possible
future of non-optimal health.
On the other hand, there is another possible future. I could be the one that runs.
Even if I can't 'race the wind', I can still run fast and far. I can feel -it- in my
body. I can feel the fire. I gotta run!
The proof is in the future. Is the cat (non-optimal health due to lack of
activities) dead in the box (future)? Or is the cat alive (running) in that box?
Schrödinger's Cat Paradox
Donna: "He saves planets, rescues civilizations, defeats terrible creatures. And
runs a lot. Seriously, there’s an outrageous amount of running involved."
Jenny: "Oh, I’ve got the whole universe! Planets to save, civilizations to rescue,
creatures to defeat… and an awful lot of running to do!"
