...that she might be a sufficient reason for young Candide

and he for her


December 7th, 2005

(no subject) @ 10:51 pm

Another observation about running. I've noticed these last couple of weeks that there is a great deal more world when you are on foot. It's something I had peripherally noticed when hiking, but you can't drive through the Big Basin trail, really, so the point is nearly moot. But the interesting thing is that when I was first starting to run, I ran along the streets. I ran the places I knew because I'd driven there. When it finally started to occur to me that, "hey, I could go over there, nobody would probably mind, I don't leave tire tracks or destroy bushes", I started to explore places I didn't really know existed. No tunnels or white rabbits, but all the same...

Today I went running out through the Intuit office park, and saw the people who make Quicken tick gathering for a holiday party, clad in greens and reds and white fuzzy hats, and toting little children and trailing rosy-cheeked spouses. There was something beautiful about that.

Also it rained a little today. Man I love running in the rain.

I wonder...

...what might be ever beautiful about Quicken Intuit environs? Or MS Money folks? On the other hand, AdCents in my blog http://goolocalizations.blogspot.com look much more enticing

What's beautiful is the people.
No matter who they work for.
Rancorous opinions are _exactly_ what holiday parties are _not_ about.
(Give them their moment of harmony; and be grateful if your own workplace has values more akin to your own.)

And the rain. The rain is beautiful too: sensual weather.

should be sent, assuming your email addres is still s11n@yahoo.com (that's an obfuscation abbreviation, not an indication that I think your username is four characters long). If not, or if you don't recieve it, send me an email directly.

Hidden worlds

(Link)
Having lived for several years in a world where these "back doors" are part of my normal commute (by bicycle, usually), I find I have two mental maps of my home town.

In one map, where sidewalks, bike paths, office parks, staircases, and one-way streets are all part of my navigable territory.

In the other, many direct routes are inaccessible, parking is a factor, and my top choices fluctuate between a small number of high-traffic through-ways based on traffic and time of day.

I sometimes find myself accidentally using the wrong map for a given circumstance. It can be quite amusing, or hellishly frustrating and dangerous, depending.
