From the movie Yes Man:
Allison: I know our music isn't that mainstream, but I love doing it
It's like my photography.
I know there isn't much demand for blurry photos taken while running, but ...
Carl Allen: I wasn't going to say anything.
Allison: You know, who cares?
The world is a playground.
You know that when you're a kid, but somewhere along the way everyone forgets it.
Carl Allen: I love your music.
Everyone can take a photo standing still.
Yes, everyone can take a photo standing still, but have you tried it while running?
If you haven't noticed yet I'm all about a holistic and unique approach to mental health and living a wholehearted life.
I think we experience the world differently when we are looking for beauty and magic, and I know I haven't been disappointed when I bring my camera along. Even without it I find myself looking for magic on my runs, which brings me into the present and makes running fun and exciting.
What makes you saw WOW?
I'd love to know.
I'd love to get a group started to meet up for Magic Runs. It would be so fun to see what everyone saw through their own lens (even if just a camera phone). It would also be a great way to get outside, connect, be creative, get active, and be inspired.
If you are interested please let me know.
In the meantime, enjoy some inspiration from photos I have been collecting from my magic runs.
