Circling The Drain

Will Gadd with some food for thought as we ‘Mericans celebrate our independence to do (and eat) pretty much whatever we set our minds to:

Things get real clear real quick: Eat shitty food and avoid exercise and you’ll stop moving and get larger. And once you get past a certain point it’s a lot harder to move (my hero lady aside). And if you stop moving you die. We’re all circling the drain every day of our lives; move faster and you stay farther from the hole for longer, like a marble in the sink.

But making time to breathe can be hard. You have to fight for it. I’m proud of the times I win the fight to breathe hard.

    Good words! It’s always easier to speak and write about sensational things. Butlers not forget that an amazing fruitful and enjoyed life is still made of ordinary things. Breath deep.
