Three Hundred Thirty-Four
September 1, 2015
7.66 Miles in 1:11:30
Mood: Being a hero and being confused by a bad album.
Soundtrack: Arcade Fire "Neon Bible" "Funeral" "Reflektor"
I was running along Ridge Road, and I noticed that there were about 30 geese in the road. Just then, I saw a car approaching, and then coming to a stop because the driver did not want to slam her car into a flock of geese. I got an opportunity to be a hero. I ran out into the street and waved my arms around like a wild man clearing the geese from the road so she could drive on...All of this was done because I am a valiant and noble goose conqueror. The lady even slowed down to share her thanks, which was unnecessary, because heroism is it's own reward.
I thought I had posted a picture of this sculpture before, but if I did, I can't seem to find that post. So on a day without too much good to photograph, this was the best I had and since this very well may be the first time I have ever posted it, it's worth seeing. This cool art is right next to a nice looking pond, but the coolest side to photograph was this side, so I couldn't get it and the pond in the same picture. Oh well, you get the idea...there is water very near this monument.
Also, I tried giving Arcade Fire's album Reflektor another listen, and I still think it is almost wholly irredeemable. I loved Neon Bible, but this one is just too weird for me. I don't get it.
