A Memoire - May 14th, 2016

I'm pretty sure the only one who will ever write about me is me. Not that I necessarily want anyone else to write about me, but being truthful have thought of it. Then I think, what would they say? Does anyone truly know me well enough to write about me? Does anyone know you well enough to write about you? It's an interesting question. Back to course, I am writing about the day I've had so far, not that it will matter to any of you or that it is supposed to come across as important to any of you. I am writing to release.

Kids were off by mid-morning and to be gone until the one that follows it. I've recently quit making excuses for myself and have been able to obtain a weight-bench set for nothing more than a 12 pack of beer (and a American Eagle as a thank you for the advantage in an incredible barter. I've begun running again, trying to gradually lessen my alcohol consumption and have for the first time in over 10 years done sit ups, knee raises, planking and mountain climbers. It's amazing how excuses can get in the way of everything.

The point is, it's never too late...for anything, unless you fail to begin it before your time is up. I know many of us wouldn't normally contemplate death or what it is to be like upon it's arrival, but the present moment is all we get. And the next one, and after. Maybe the future you want to see is best made in the moment you get right now. I love to write and share and express ideas through words. It's not something I can do away with, as it is my means to decompressing. The wonderful thing about getting older is that you come to act upon in a more contemplative way, that which makes you who you are.

I want to lift weights again! So I'm doing it. I want to run again...so I'm doing it! Not to sound or infringe upon the words of any privately-held business, but I'm just doing it. If I intend to be around; if I intend to experience my children becoming adults, I am left with the clearest choice. That choice glimmers brighter than a diamond; that choice is pleasantly urgent.

Peace and Love always.
