I'm trying, I'm really trying but my right foot is SO painful...
Kenji Miyazawa, who said that stuff about pain, was a Japanese poet and author of children's literature in the early Shōwa period of Japan. He was also known as a devout Buddhist, vegetarian and social activist.
But not a road runner.
I'm not by any means a coward. I keep going and I keep going. I've been embracing my pain AND I've been burning it as fuel for my journey. SO THERE Kenji Miyazawa!
My body is NOT co-operating. My policy of ignoring the pain in the belief that it'll simply give up and go away isn't working.
I'm seriously fed up.
(Note how I phrased that very politely)
Speak again tomorrow when I'm sure I'll have recovered my equanimity.
