A good mood
What was that latin saying - "Anything to get to lunch". Let it be known that I am really in a very nice mood. Frisky. But serious. Ride at six, run at 7. Lets do this thing. Sub Six minute mile. I used to pace my 5k sub six minute miles. I can do this.
Update: 6/13/07. Alright I'm Mellow Cat. Yesterday evening was a trip. Hail rained down on me last night. I rushed to get to the stables but I couldn't make it. We had to take cover. The storm moved in, in less than 10 minutes. I stood there under the eave of the Freemason's lodge with two other men - a dodge and an SUV and my car sheltered from the quarter and nickel sized hail breaking windshields and denting everyone up. One fellow was a hillbilly, the other from Jamaica (welcome to Atlanta) - who had never even seen hail before (*!). So we're standing on freemason land - I remarked that I saw, my first ad from the Freemasons (the one on youtube where ben franklin is talking about how the freemasons have always found good men) that same day. So I asked because 2B1ASK1 right - and he said something about an initiation. I remember when I can look straight into the center of a man's eye. It was an interesting moment. Apparently if I am to join, I will have to have some backer to get in. Not even hail cutting the limbs off the trees moved me away from the new zero. Any shining happy fantasy that I am in fact in a good mood snaps quickly under control when I try to do the sub six minute pace. The best golf I have ever played is when I simply get down to the business of shotmaking and the flat blade. I don't have to be happy and everything doesn't have to be perfect. So I get a bit keen when things look like this. After all the business is really falling apart. I have to get things going there. Its funny though. Thats all just money. I can deal with that. A good round, almost unlike anything else in life, has a feel to it that stays with you nearly forever. Golf is a four letter word. I think its nice to have just one moment where I am not some kind of way out abstract person but someone who has a big family and a strong wife and happy kids and an estate. Who knows. Maybe one day I will also get a nice new 6'3" tri fin from G+S. Some tasty seven foot hollow lefts. Man. Surfing. Golf. Makes triathlon look lame. Maybe its because, truly.. Mellow Cat rules.
