Was fortunate to go on a trip to Tuscany for four days. Brought my trainers somewhat optimistically and managed a 5k. Went out with a colleague and to be honest I was abysmal, even resorted to the ‘let’s take a picture’ ploy to avoid the hills.
Even so, it was stunning and after amazing company and sampling the local wines, suffering was a small price to pay. I would like to have said that I had a spring in my step however I was decidedly ploddy and really felt the heat..
However the light mist and excitement of a new day made it worth it and for a few moments, it felt like the day was truly mine.
They’re not that different from you, are they? Same haircuts. Full of hormones, just like you. Invincible, just like you feel. The world is their oyster. They believe they’re destined for great things, just like many of you, their eyes are full of hope, just like you. Did they wait until it was too late to make from their lives even one iota of what they were capable? Because, you see gentlemen, these boys are now fertilizing daffodils. But if you listen real close, you can hear them whisper their legacy to you. Go on, lean in. Listen, you hear it? – – Carpe – – hear it? – – Carpe, carpe diem, seize the day boys, make your lives extraordinary.
