“I’m just a replaceable natural phenomenon,like the water in the river that flows under the bridge towards the sea”– Haruki Murakami

Over the weekend I read Haruki Murakami’s memoir, What I Talk About When I Talk About Running-which definitely sits at the top of my impressionable list of the year ( alongside The Goldfinch, James Bladwin’s Giovanni’s Room and Books and Cigarettes by George Orwell).I firmly believe that in the modern literary world,Murakami’s imagination is unrivalled and reading about the confluence between his running and writing was a wise perspective on how the things that we spend our time doing,intersect more naturally than we are conscious of.

Wrapping up the last pages in the wee hours of the morning,I silently vowed to make my distance walking more ambitious.I intend to swim more in open waters and start a garden when I’m more settled in a few months.I want to reach that junction where variants harmonise every single day.I do believe that this is how creativity and fulfilment come about.
