turkey trot?

Just a quickie to let y'all know I'll be in town for thanksgiving! Flying in late wednesday night just in time to make it out to the pink at primetime debotchery hour! Also as crazy at it sounds I need a thursday morning run. Does the turkey trot still happen in Buffalo and is anyone interested? --I'm buying Mimosa's after!

unbearable lightness of being

As I sit and hold her hands, I can no longer feel the aches and pains of my recent 17 mile run. I no longer tense my shoulders with the stress of my hectic schedule, and I don't particularly feel attached to the static nature of my relationship. She is nearing the end of a 20 year battle with cancer and although her days are numbered I'm convinced she's won. She gasps labored breaths through the oxygen mask but her eyes remain strong and calm. She teaches me what it is to be detached. I am reminded that you don't always have to like yourself to tolerate yourself. In a solid gaze, she has given me her "lightness," or rather shown me that which was already there.
