Long HalloweenPosted: October 31, 2012 Filed under: Random Workout | Tags: Batman, Comics, fitness, halloween, health, musings, sandy 14 Comments
They asked me what I was reading – and laughed when I told them Batman. Probably thought to themselves, “Oh, he’s a graphic novel lover.” And I am – but not for why they think. Instead I’m modeling.
I’m never going to be rich like Bruce Wayne, but it’s the archetype that I’m tapping into. It’s no different than studying Greek mythology to understand fundamental human behaviour we all have inside of us. I’m a martial artist – whereby the martial arts has affected the way I live my life. Reading Batman allows me to tap into a world where being better than human is possible – and that means I can try to bridge that gap in my own mind. One thing is very clear to me: whether Bruce is real or not, he trained his ass off in the martial arts in order to do what he’s able to do. While he’s got all the gadgets in the world, hard work and time spent in the arts are the two things that really come out when he’s fighting. And that’s something I can aspire to.
Read comics. Be better than human.
Rest Day … It’s the perfect night to go for a Brisk Walk with the little ones!

“Be better than human” has a spiritual connotation too – LOVE IT!
Same here! Be sure to head over to CTK’s blog to read some other inspiring words … Take care and have a great night tonight.
🙂 Love today’s post. As a Ms. Marvel fan myself, I understand. Rock on, Batman/BW!
Thank you, be well and Happy Halloween!!!
LOVE IT. I’m feeling better than human already…
Enjoy your reading…Happy Halloween 🙂
Always a pleasure to have you over! Happy Halloween. 🙂
Gotta share this. 🙂 Part of what I always liked about Batman was that he was (and I know it’s a stretch) a possibility, not a hero with super powers exactly, something to aspire to in a sense.
Excellent point mate! You and I both share the same feelings in regards to aspiring, reaching a higher state of consciousness/ability without having super powers … Take care and thank you for your continued support!
It makes you disappointed in Bill Gates, doesn’t it? I mean he is richer than Batman, but he isn’t out beating people up….
Bill Gates? Who’s that …Oh, Warren Buffets bridge partner. 😉
I really like Batman… but for pure cartonic enjoyment – and a dark sense of humor try LOBO! (That’s some funny sh*) Belated Halloween hugs,
