Mid-Life Crisis: Unthinking, and clarified by the cold
Published 07/12/2015 | 02:30
So I'm thinking of doing something called 'ice swimming'. I don't know much about it yet but apparently you can do it up the North somewhere and it's freezing. I mentioned it at home. And obviously I was asked why I was thinking of doing this. And I could only give the answer that all great adventurers give: "Because it's there."
There is a part of me saying I will actually never do it. But then, that voice that tells me I will not do things has been proven wrong quite a bit recently. Recently a madness has taken hold and I have actually done a few of those things you vaguely entertain and then realise you will never do.
Now and again these days, instead of sleepwalking through life not bothering to do things, I have found myself sleepwalking into doing things.
