I spent most of tonight’s run thinking about Oprah Winfrey, since I am one of Those People who admires her immensely and am not afraid to say it. More to come on this topic after I see the finale show on Wednesday. I expect to be in full-on ugly cry mode and it is supposed to rain, so God (or similar) will be crying too.
The other person I don’t know personally but who I have been thinking about a lot is Lance Armstrong. I remember saying last year on a beach weekend with my girl friends that I thought he was guilty of doping and that sooner or later it would come out. I got some push back. Anyhow, more to write about here too, but I saw this quote and it all clicked.
“No man for any considerable period can wear one face to himself and another to the multitude, without finally getting bewildered as to which may be the true.” Nathaniel Hawthorne, The Scarlet Letter
Lance unlike Oprah, is very bewildered.
