I have been eating nothing but fruit and some veggies for the past few days and I feel great. When I pick up the persimmon, it feels as though I have the entire heft of the world in my hands - that, when I am running, I am actually defying gravity as though itself is a small thing like a persimmon.
And in that moment, that joke of millions of billions of people igniting fires inside of metal boxes inside of metal boxes, simply trying to get away from their boring lives, I laugh. How funny it is that the very things we are trying to escape are the things that bring us down. Call me crazy, and you can laugh at me as you pass me by, but I'm going to keep laughing and running.
That's my secret - that I have some way of being lighter on my feet and faster than everyone else simply because I've figured out how to make myself that way. And eventually, I will grow older, and stronger, and defy gravity.
