I’ve been happy lately. This is a lovely thing because for so long I felt like I was trapped in a dour, depressing outlook on life. Nothing major that I’ve been hoping for has really happened yet, but still I am having a very different outlook on things. There’s only two things this can be blamed on: a) God & b) endorphins.

I’m training for the Rock N Roll half marathon. Notice I don’t say I’m running it. I’m not an athlete and the half marathon is walker friendly, which is nice as since I’ve never run I’m not going to be able to run 13.1 miles by June. I’ll be lucky to run 2 miles by June and walk the rest, but I will be happy with that even. However, in order to train I’ve been walking/running 4 days a week – long distances too. Exercise produces endorphins which make you happy. I am very happy and even better because I am getting healthy (one of my goals for 2010).

A happy and healthy artist is a productive artist. Now let’s see what can happen from here…
