The passion of artist Grainger McKoy, who reached the pinnacle of success — and found it wanting
Very moving. It speaks to running because it speaks to life.❤️
Amazing piece Terrell. I think the beauty in running is not the run itself, but all the prayers that can touch people while completing the act. You are an amazing writer and captured the essence of life itself. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this piece.
Just beautiful! Loved the bit about the grain of the struggling walnut tree.
Dang, this hit home with me this week! There are so many things I connect with. I’m having my 7th graders do a poetry unit for the next couple of weeks. Yesterday we read, “Invictus,” & talked about being determined & strong. I told them that ALL of us have struggles. All of us have issues. It’s our attitude towards life’s difficulties that shapes us & defines us.
This article ties in with that & my thoughts this week. I’m more than halfway thru my life. I am blessed enough to have a job I love & people I love in my life, but looking back, I chose to fight for those things. They were important to me.
This artist is right about when we die. We won’t want to be handed our tools (or laptops 😊), we’ll want to hold the hands of those we love.
I’m going on & on, but thank you for this! It fits my thoughts perfectly right now. 👍🏼
WOW. Probably my favorite you have ever done. Valuable lessons from someone with a very unique perspective. Thank you.
This was a wonderful read. McKoy's perspective - and the way you let it shine through - is inspiring.
Loved this! These words can apply to everyday life! Thank you for sharing!
