am--6 Out-and-back on the Grapevine road. I love this run, and even though the crew was light again today, kids were doing cool things. 

I also finished Going After Cacciato by Tim O'Brien. It's a Vietnam novel w/ a nice dose of Magical Realism. The basic premise of the novel is that Cacciato deserts and decides to walk from Vietnam to Paris. His squad goes after him. Near the end of the book, I found a great quote:

"Peace of mind is not a simple matter of pursuing one's own pleasure; rather, it is inextricably linked to the attitudes of other human beings, to what they want, to what they expect. The real issue is how to find felicity within limits. Within the context of our obligations to other people. We all want peace. We all want dignity and domestic tranquillity. But we want these to be honrable and lasting. We want a peace that endures. We want a peace we can be proud of. Even in imagination we must obey the logic of what we started. Even in imagination we must be true to our obligations, for, even in imagination, obligation cannot be outrun." (320-321)
