What makes a vacation?  Place? Comfort? Sure.  But I think disconnecting is important as well.  I dislike our "president", but I'm trying to be KIND, even to him. (and I'm not doing so well at that).

It all rolls into one

And nothing comes for free

There's nothing you can hold

For very long

And when you hear that song

Come crying like the wind

It seems like all this life 

Was just a dream

Stella Blue

Today’s episode is an addendum to my last episode, number 343 “Dr. George Sheehan: Beginning”.  Although not a prerequisite to listening to this, Alot of what I’m going to say about running flows directly from what Dr. Sheehan had to say about taking to the road and lacing up our shoes.

If I'd thought about it I never would've done it

I guess I would've let it slide

If I'd-a paid attention to what others were thinkin'

The heart inside me would've died

But I was just too stubborn to ever be governed by enforced insanity

Someone had to reach for the risin' star

I guess it was up to me

 

I met somebody face to face and I had to remove my hat

She's everything I need and love but I can't be swayed by that

It frightens me, the awful truth of how sweet life can be

But she ain't a-gonna make me move, I guess it must be up to me
