You see, I want a lot.
Perhaps I want everything:
the darkness that comes with every infinite fall
and the shivering blaze of every step up.
-Rainer Maria Rilke
I really enjoyed Tim Ferriss’s interview with Paulo Coelho. Have you read The Alchemist? The Pilgrimmage? Eleven Minutes? A few of my favorite reads. The interview is really fantastic, touching on matters of procrastination, flow, being in the moment, and trusting your process – you can’t push the river. Paulo keeps it real.

Notes | My calves are still sore from the raises on Monday. Things felt a little hebby and slow; by the end of the barbell work I felt fried. On a positive technique note, I can’t believe how much grounding myself better has changed how the movements feel. Moving in the other direction on technique, I crotched myself on the second set of snatches really fucking hard. Post-lifting at the casa called for ice to-the-crotch and carbs to-the-face.
