If you squint, the Whispering Grove icon looks like some barfing into a garbage can. My finely tuned radar that can see right through forced fun is how I can so easily see things like that. It's a clear trap.

Whispering Grove can be Hansel's new Sulphur Springs run name.

Where is that this year? Is it at the super groovy ancaster community life affirming human soul recharging serenity space? If so, I'm busy.

Also, who eats even non poisonous Indian the night before a race? Someone needs to adjust that boys chakras and cleanse his aura right away. The serene waters of not doing dumb shit will surely reject him otherwise.

Just remember that as you "notice the expansiveness of nature, [you should] let your thoughts expand to include new possibilities for your leadership and your life."

Oh yeah. Totally doing that now. I have the most expansive thoughts in history and I still hate that BS. Sad!

Sounds like *someone* with a bad attitude needs to spend more time in The Mindful Forest. That will almost certainly lead you toward the Path To Renewal. Unless you fall into the Waters Of Integrity, of course. They could be awfully cold at this time of year.

After some not very deep thought I have decided I will pee in the waters of mindfulness. It's the least I can do. That, incidentally, makes my pool a 'water of mindfulness' given the ratio of visiting kids (very high) to requests for directions to the loo (very, very low).

Anyhoo, must focus.

I have a wish to pee In the mindful water thing. And a plan to carry it out. The very thought makes me laugh out loud with sinister delight. Actually, what made me laugh was thinking about making a video of the event with my cell phone a la the effin camera/rope swing item.

One time after along night of drinking my brother in law and I peed in the Rideau canal wayyy past last call. One of the best leaks of my life, really. It makes a hell of a noise with the elevation and all. Good times until Marc zipped and left abruptly. I was puzzled. I look around. There was a boat docked. And maybe six people sitting by candlelight, also having a drink, but enjoying the long, loud whizz I was still taking I'd say at least 100% less than I had been up to that point. Best part - I'm no where near done. And not at all inclined to stop. So I don't. Ham-mered. Laughing, now. A chuckle at first, and then a deep belly laugh which is only making the whole thing more difficult. And needing to get the heck out of there but just hanging on anyhow.

Almost twenty years ago now.

So is it an indoor "Track of Transformation"?

I don't think we've met, but I'm entertained by your log.

The tone of your prose resonates.

Great pee story.

Super tone.

Keep running.

No. They call it gula stigen. Weird.

And hi there klepperton, glad you like it. I amuse myself almost exclusively so it's good to know that someone else gets a laugh.

I'm sure we will meet eventually since you're a map guy and I keep hanging around these other map guys. Only I don't orienteer, I don't train much, or go to things in general, nor allow myself to be talked into raids any more. But totally soon.
