7:30 AM. - “Stuck in traffic” has become my unofficial life mantra.
Thoughts being hastily written onto my mobile phone.
Typographical errors abound.
Luckily, they don’t matter as much in an internal monologue.
There’s 18% power left, and my charging cable is missing.
Still, I write.
I guess you could say I’m a risk-taker.
A few days ago, I found myself hiking up a mountain.
Great feats of achievement for a man who
Has known nothing else of the local landscape aside from shopping malls and secret cafes.
9 peaks, 38 thousand steps, 9 miles, and 3800 calories are not enough
To convey the exhilaration, fear, and trust that forms between ill-prepared men
Who are doing their best not to slip and fall off the side of a mountain.
Spending 8 to 12 hours a day sitting on a desk at work has prepared us for this adventure,
in the same way that evolution has prepared the manatee for survival in the African Savannah.
Still, I survived a mountain.
Perhaps the manatee might survive the Savannah.
