Just Do It ~ Nike Ad circa 1994

Do not suffer from loneliness.

Go outside.

Go away.

It’s all the people making you lonely.

Pick a spot on the horizon and head straight for it.

Weave your way through a stand of Redwoods.

Kayak an island chain.

Peer over your toes at the edge of a canyon.

Go to your favorite place.

Again, and again.

This is what you need to do.

Not just because it fuels your independence,

But because it reminds you you’re a part of something bigger.

And although it may not occur to the baffled onlookers

who can’t take their eyes off

your smiling mud-covered wired-up insane self,

it will occur to you.

You aren’t the one who’s lonely.
