TGIF, in both the traditional sense and the Kid Cudi sense. Isn’t it crazy the way that sometimes what you read during your commute can set the tone for the entire day? Welllahhh, this morning I finished up an article entitled “The Man who Sailed his House” in GQ. I wish so badly that I could link to it, but the October issue isn’t online yet. It was so incredibly good, that would suggest buying the issue for that story alone, even if you couldn’t care less about men’s fashion.
The story is about the gentleman pictured above, who was swept out to sea on his own roof after the recent earthquake and ensuing tsunami in Japan. It is written in second person narrative, which threw me at first, since that voice seems to generally be reserved for fiction. The story is packed to the gills with loss, tragedy, despair, and destruction. Then balanced out with hope, miracles, humanity, and elation. I hope that I haven’t talked it up too much. Anyway, it was a very uplifting way to start the weekend.
On the docket– Reagan and I will be prepping for a kind of big shoot Monday, which will probably take up most of our free time this weekend. I’m going to try to sneak in 10 miles tomorrow followed by an 18 mile tune up on Sunday with NYRR. I just came down with a cold, yesterday. So, things might get interesting. 15 Days until the Chi-town Marathon. I’m getting excited and nervous.
Have a great weekend.
PS, I’ll keep an eye out for article I mentioned, and link to it when it is published online.
PdoubleS, Fall 2011 beardwatch starts this weekend.
