(no subject)

Good (Wednesday) morning!

The sun is shining brightly, the big green lorry that pulled out in front of me on my wat in to work this morning was far enough away for me to stop, and I've still got my place in the New York marthon.


There is only one thing a philosopher can be relied upon to do, and that is to contradict other philosophers.
William James (1842 - 1910)
Well I'm not sure that's true ...

I've always found paranoia to be a perfectly defensible position.
Pat Conroy (1945 - )
Why is he saying that? And why are they looking at me here at work?

A desk is a dangerous place from which to watch the world.
John le Carre (1931 - )
Well it does have some dangers ... frustration on a day like today that I'm at the desk being the chief one.

It is always easier to believe than to deny. Our minds are naturally affirmative.
John Burroughs (1837 - 1921)
So true :)


For those of you interested, I have another journal where I put comments about my training and races I've run. Go here to see it and experience the pain :)
