When Thoughts Run Away
When you’re both a runner and thinker, and your thoughts run as much as you do
Some days I’m running in the park looking around.
Sometimes listening to something or putting stuff on pause while I need to listen to my own mind and connect the dots between what I’ve heard and what I know already.
As I process all the input, I have an urge to create, construct, craft an output. – perhaps write up, a diary entry or a post. Who knows which path I’ll take.
So in the moment, I must stop running and start writing or recording.
I wonder if this is lack of focus or too much of it — intense and intentional channeling of energy.
Whatever it is, it’s me.
Between crazy and genius is a fine line.
There are moments I feel like I have one step on each side of this line, and my job is to keep running.
Proverbially and literally.
