Haruki Murakami: ‘I run in order to acquire a void’

“But really as I run, I don’t think much of anything worth mentioning. I just run. I run in a void. Or maybe I should put it the other way: I run in order to acquire a void… As I run I tell myself to think of a river. And clouds. But essentially I’m not thinking of a thing. All I do is keep on running in my own cozy, homemade void, my own nostalgic silence. And this is a pretty wonderful thing. No matter what anybody else says.”
— Haruki Murakami, [easyazon_link identifier=”0307389839″ locale=”US” tag=”wells01-20″]What I Talk About When I Talk About Running: A Memoir [/easyazon_link]
Just running, thinking of nothingness.
