    “There’s less time to run in light in the morning and there’s more time in the darkness to live with your thoughts and the discomfort from which they are born.”

    This multiplied by infinity. I am terrified by the shortening of the days and the knowledge that the cold, dark winter is fast-approaching. I try to enjoy the beautiful fall, but it seems so shockingly fleeting that I almost can’t. I am happy that I can still run on a treadmill when it is awful outside (I live in the Northeastern United States where snow and ice can be challenging, to say the least), but I would so much rather have it be early summer all the time where it is still cool in the morning and getting lighter each time I run and everything seems alive and full.

    In any event, know you are not alone. Your posts help to keep me going.

    One thing I’m trying to focus on is to be more “Pro Stuff, not just Anti Stuff” in the words of Tim Minchin, who is also a comedic cynic who’s identity is wrapped up in the things that make him angry. Still, be who you are. Try to find a balance between the two, and let yourself be angry about things: it shows you what you actually care about most.
