Switchin' it up and slowin' down
but when i run i'm usually in my head. yes, the surrounding environment is there, but my mind isn't focused on it.
the other day i decided to rest my legs and do something different: i went on a walk.
i walked up and down the streets in my neighborhood -- a chi town neighborhood i've lived in for nearly 5 years now -- and for the first time, i SAW my neighborhood.
that may sound weird, but i encourage you to try it. slow down. look at everything. pay attention to the little things. ask questions. be curious.
when i got home -- TWO HOURS LATER!!! -- i was giddy from all of the cool shit i learned lurked just beyond my door.
