Bruce Lee had me up to three miles a day, really at a good pace. We’d run the three miles in twenty-one or twenty-two minutes. Just under eight minutes a mile [Note: when running on his own in 1968, Lee would get his time down to six-and-a half minutes per mile]. So this morning he said to me “We’re going to go five.” I said, “Bruce, I can’t go five. I’m a helluva lot older than you are, and I can’t do five.” He said, “When we get to three, we’ll shift gears and it’s only two more and you’ll do it.” I said “Okay, hell, I’ll go for it.” So we get to three, we go into the fourth mile and I’m okay for three or four minutes, and then I really begin to give out. I’m tired, my heart’s pounding, I can’t go any more and so I say to him, “Bruce if I run any more,” –and we’re still running-”if I run any more I’m liable to have a heart attack and die.” He said, “Then die.” It made me so mad that I went the full five miles. Afterward I went to the shower and then I wanted to talk to him about it. I said, you know, “Why did you say that?” He said, “Because you might as well be dead. Seriously, if you always put limits on what you can do, physical or anything else, it’ll spread over into the rest of your life. It’ll spread into your work, into your morality, into your entire being. There are no limits. There are plateaus, but you must not stay there, you must go beyond them. If it kills you, it kills you. A man must constantly exceed his level.”
Nothing better than getting a new #tattoomachine from #infiniteirons ! I love my current machines, and can’t wait to try out this new liner from #joeyd himself! Thanks man! If you use #coilmachines and haven’t tried an #infinite get to it, the man produces ridiculously awesome stuff.

me being in realtionships isn’t the prettiest of things. I feel like I really like someone and then all the sudden one day I wake up and they don’t compare to a certain someone, so I give up on the relationship. And honestly I don’t know if its something wrong with me now or what. The fact that its been so long since we dated and I’ve now been through a couple decent length relationships makes me feel like my heart will always tell me that no one can match that one person. The only one who I’ve ever put that high. So everyone sucks compared to you. And I’m not even trying to compare the two, but I always catch myself after saying oh @#$$ did this cute thing when we did this, or @#$$ did that and I liked it better etc
I’m a terrible person.
And I need some fucking sleep. And maybe a steak. And maybe some Jameson.
#watercolor a traditional-ish rose today. I obviously still need work. I don’t like the magenta as much as I thought I would. Eff.
#rose #design I am #doodling today. Probably going to throw some watercolor at it and hope it does it justice.
