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.
