My boat and I...enter the lake,
turn as night falls toward the west
where I watch the south star over the mountain,
and the rising mist, hovering over the water,
and the low moon slanting through the trees:
And threr I choose to forget every wordly matter
and be only an old man out fishing.

My mom had a framed poster of this. I remember having those words in the periphery of our day to day for a very long time. Brings back good memories.

Beautiful. That's how I feel about running. no matter what mood I'm in when I start my run, I always come back feeling like everything's alright with the world.
