i like me.

So you see, it’s all about the web of interconnections, connecting things which were originally separate, or at least had the semblance of separateness even though, in Reality, they’re all of the same stuff. Like two turntables. Like a walk to Peet’s, my hot wife, and the witty refrain “i like me.”

is it the end of the world yet?

I really gotta stop stop hanging around the Interweb. It’s so depressing. Watch this: Didja watch that? It’s all about clergy acting as first-responders in the event of a national disaster, like Hurricane Katrina. Like they did in Hurricane Katrina. Now, don’t get me wrong. I’m all for acts of charity, religious or otherwise. But […]

filthy bodhisattvas!

This was passed to me today by one of my colleagues here at the IBS. It’s from a 15th century Tibetan source (I think), and it’s best to imagine the final “m’s” of the chants to be long and drawn out, with the lips closed, humming: The sewers of Benares are filled with all kinds […]

I think I need to look at this picture every day. Maybe I’ll stick it on my butsudan or something. It’s been a weird day. I was über productive coding monkey this morning and by noon my mind was wandering. And now that I’m home, I feel unfocused. But calm, too. Thoughts meander all over […]

mythical august has arrived!

First off, the wedding was spectacular. It was at terns beautiful, sentimental, silly, deeply romantic, spiritual, and a helluva lot of fun.
