I love to run. I usually run with music in my ears: it helps me with the rythm and pushes me when I am tired. Yesterday I went out for a run in the late afternoon. As the sun started to fade, I removed my headsets: the air was fresh and humid, the sound of my steps coordinated with my breath, the last birds sung as the country prepared itself for the night.
Not distracted from the music, I feel strogly present and centered. It was a kind of awakening moment.
