Above all low delay,
Where nothing earthly bounds her flight, Nor shadow dims her way.” - Thomas Moore

  3. There are no tricks. Run because you have to. Run because you love it. Run because you want to be fast. Run because you want to be skinny. Run to find some quiet time. Run to sweat. Run to eat. Run to hear your heart pound in your ears. Run because you’re a runner. Run because you gotta keep the streak. Run because you don’t know why the hell you’re running. Run because you fought with your partner. Run because your job is cruddy. Run because you got no money. Run for the sunrise. Run for a race. Run because it’s impossible. Run because it’s easy. Run instead of doing laundry. Run instead of watching TV. Run because no one else understands. Run because the cool kids are doing it. Run because you’re tired of talking. Run for numbers. Run for feel. Run to prove something. Run because it freaking hurts. Or don’t run. If you got something better to do.

  5. some people get caught up in the number chasing, you know?  we so often lose sight of the things that really matter when we’re in that mentality. to climb is a priviledge - to have found climbing is a privilege.  for me, the feeling of climbing something for the first time - not just bolt to bolt; or piece to piece; not just move to move - but climbing it from the ground up in one go… that feeling will never get old. it reminds me of sunsets, and the soft light leading up to them.

  6. I’ve been in the habit of making things for public consumption so long now that a lot of the mystery that is bound up in Creative Endeavor evaporates. Patrick Rothfuss had me on as a “beta tester” for Wise Man’s Fear, which I was more than happy to do: I wrote NO in thick black sharpie over entire pages, and I think I even shook my fist at one point at an impotent God. I don’t know how the book turned out because I never read the “real” version, but this very act horrified Gabriel. He thinks of books as being Absolute Things, like Sandwiches, as opposed to something that vibrates or shifts in any particular. I didn’t find it particularly weird, but you come into this stuff with a lot of your own shit. Perspective is, to him, more or less inviolate. That’s something I get.

    I love Tycho’s position on editing.  Words are his thing, and he wields considerable power both on them and how other people use them.
