“This sweet, blessed, God-inspired place called America is a champion that has absorbed some blows.
But while we bend, we don’t break. This is no dark hour; this is the dawn before we remember who we are.”
I’m a newbie in the Ultra distances. I’ve completed two of the shortest versions; 50Ks. It is an interesting distance for those that have never traveled that far by foot. Rob Krar adds the Grand Canyon to his… for breakfast; Rob Krar’s an Inspiration.
I was watching Skyfall recently. It is one of the recent James Bond films. In the movie Turner’s “The Fighting Temeraire tugged to her last Berth to be broken up” is seen and commented on by the younger Q and the older Bond. The dialog went like this:
Q: It always makes me feel a little melancholy. Grand old war ship, being ignominiously hauled away to scrap… The inevitability of time, don’t you think? What do you see?
James Bond: A bloody big ship.
It’s an interesting dialog, one which examines the two characters’ perspectives. I’m reminded of the more recent example which this same dialog could have been applied to earlier this year; the decommissioned CONSTELLATION. I find that example an interesting demonstration of the continuum of time.
But in my mind there are two vessels and two questions which are more important to think about and address:
Which vessel are you?
When will you be the other one?
I look forward to hearing your answers!
