Between the wild waters and the still,
there is a special place to recharge and refill,
shines glowing on the surface
quietly and calm, touched, without any trace.
For a second, I catched the sun –
and now it’s time, to get up and run.
Fire burning under my feet,
can’t run from this place
my hands are burning
my eyes are burning
and my heart
(though long ago.)
Another sleepless night coming up. And so I found myself on my balcony again, on a warm evening, turning into a night, watching the sky, watching the stars, watching the world go dark. 2 am. Still no signs of sleep. And no signs of civilization. Somehow I felt strong.
Earlier I had a very short (digital) conversation with someone who touches something in me. I don’t know that person very well, but once, when we just met, we had a deep conversation. I felt connection. I felt understood. This was a person who experienced similar troubles, difficulties, disconnection, and so on. That person was really open to me somehow. I don’t know why. But somehow, I feel a lot of respect for that person. I wish I could talk more, to that person. But this person, is far away and will probably never be close. It has something that makes me very sad, but also something that is beautiful as well – I should be grateful that I met that person right? that I had an opportunity to talk with that person. Something about it makes me feel really sad. But for now, this (short) conversation made me feel good when I recalled it in my mind.
Anyway, even if I cycled earlier on the day for a few hours with these mountains that normally exhaust my legs, my legs felt strong this time. For a moment, I felt strong. And I took my running shoes, and went for a midnight run.
