I’ve been going on night runs lately, and I can’t help but feel like it’s been putting my entire life into better perspective. We run around all day sometimes feeling lost and robotic, and then when we come home, we usually just rest up and laze. Or watch Mad Men. That’s great in theory, but I’ve found that my runs in the evening actually allow me to stop being a robot for a minute, and start thinking about the real. What’s going on? I work all day, interacting with several different types of people in different locations, and I smile and laugh and give kisses on the cheek. It’s such a formula. While it comes from a very real place, it can get really tiring and repetitive. While I always attempt to live a life of fulfillment, sometimes we just need to face the facts. We’re all working animals, and there’s little to be done about it. We need to face these realities earlier.
Daylight I’m so absent minded, night time meeting new anxieties.
That time of clarity for my mind and soul is really necessary these days, especially with the amount I’ve managed to take on. I’m happy about all the decisions I’ve made, and I’m really happy that the people in my life exist because without them, this life would be dull and uneventful. I’m grateful for the bad, the disgusting, and the sad. Those make the happy moments so remarkable, and so real.
Of Montreal does that for me. I guess they’ve just managed to put me in that kind of contemplative, reflective mood. As I’ve said countless times to friends, sometimes songs just end up being the soundtracks to your thoughts. I hope you dig this as much as I do. I’m also going to have to include a Casiokids track in here because it’s just too good to pass up.
