I guess you are trying to find in what point the "straw bale" houses are connected with the 197 ongoing running days.
During afternoon i called a familiar person and he answered me short of breath because he was running on the mountain. We talked for a while about this project and then he reinforced me to keep writing. "There are many runners out there that are thinking while running, we are not alone" he told me pretty much using these words.
The audiences that are sharing keep going and support. The breaths, the expansion, the steps on the earth, mine or others, in the same path or on another one today, yesterday or the day after. This is the place where we all meet...my lovely audience, having the self or the others the best company.
I was running this night around the base ground on 22.00p.m. I didn't feel alone. I was thinking, firstly, the "straw bale" houses without knowing the reason that i thought something like this. Then i remembered the small conversation on the phone this afternoon.
Many times, something totally different motivates us for achieving our goal. There are situations, people, memories that wake up feelings from another source and you can meet them in different ways. This is the basic origin for Psychotherapy.
This is a connection with the community of the people that built those houses having those common characteristics.
This is my lovely community that i live inside. Running connects us.
This is the common characteristic of these two communities that i mentioned before; the need to be in contact with the nature and earthy around.
I think you will agree with this. There is no chance to feel alone belonging to this company.
