…the art of delusional thinking…

I am always amazed when people comment about how I am, seemingly, ‘good’ or adept at doing a particular thing – even things I don’t necessarily enjoy. Implying that I seem to have some innate talent or that I make things look easy. It makes me laugh a bit, because deep down, I know, I … Continue reading

…hotdogs…

One day, Buddha finds himself in New York City. He suddenly realizes an unquenchable desire to experience what it is to eat a hot dog.

…lessons of perfection, taught by a potato…

Things such as this always send me on a powerful whirl around the block of thoughts and meaning. In the overall scheme of things it’s probably analogous to getting 3 cherries to come up on a pull of a nickel slot machine – it’s merely chance… I was setting out to make potato pancakes. I … Continue reading
