Oh good, I like rabbit but they're a little scarce around here these days.

Wow, that's quite the recipe. You'll have to email it to me.

OK, but will it tickle?

I like it here, too. So much, it seems that it impacts my subconscious....

Last night I dreamt that I was visiting Nelson at his home. It was so cool, very outdoors like. In fact, we spent most of the time outdoors. He didn't say much, rather matter-of-fact, and spent most of his time demonstrating the various amplifiers and speakers that he'd developed over the years. He showed me what the different distortions sound like. At one point, I remember the two of us shoving a large boulder into the stream--I guess we wanted to see how big a splash it would make.

It was a very Zen like dream--he was the teacher, I, the student. I mean, I was really there!! Just wish I didn't have to wake-up. Like everyone else here, I'm very fond of Nelson.

That's a pretty good description, except that the stream runs through a
sluice box carved out of the granite bedrock. The creek was a gold mining
operation a hundred and fifty years ago. There are no boulders.

I think it is only one dream as long as it stays a dream
in reality it is probably a lot of hard and tidious routine work

with some moments of highlights

very much as is life, for most everyone of us, rich or poor, black or white

Post About life & the meaning of life & the way to live

.
I like it here!
Well, do you?
If we extend that statement to include life it self.
The one short life of one human being.

some thinkings about life
there was a wise man long ago
that wanted to explore what life of man really is.
In short, he did conclude,
that basically all our existense was mere
.. a chasing the wind
Quote:
12 I, the Preacher, was king of Israel, living in Jerusalem. And I applied myself to search for understanding about everything in the universe. I discovered that the lot of man, which God has dealt to him, is not a happy one. It is all foolishness, chasing the wind. What is wrong cannot be righted; it is water over the dam; and there is no use thinking of what might have been.

16 I said to myself, "Look, I am better educated than any of the kings before me in Jerusalem. I have greater wisdom and knowledge."

So I worked hard to be wise instead of foolish--
but now I realize that even this
was like chasing the wind.
And he also in his study observed,
that human destiny is no different from animals' (beasts) destiny.
Not really it is!
Quote:
12 So I conclude that, first, there is nothing better for a man than to be happy and to enjoy himself as long as he can;

13 and second, that he should eat and drink and enjoy the fruits of his labors, for these are gifts from God.

14 And I know this, that whatever God does is final-- nothing can be added or taken from it; God's purpose in this is that man should fear the all-powerful God.

15 Whatever is has been long ago; and whatever is going to be has been before; God brings to pass again what was in the distant past and disappeared.

16 Moreover, I notice that throughout the earth justice is giving way to crime, and even the police courts are corrupt.

17 I said to myself, "In due season God will judge everything man does, both good and bad."

18 And then I realized that God is letting the world go on its sinful way so that he can test mankind, and so that men themselves will see that they are no better than beasts.

19 For men and animals both breathe the same air, and both die. So mankind has no real advantage over the beasts; what an absurdity!

20 All go to one place-- the dust from which they came and to which they must return.

21 For who can prove that the spirit of man goes upward and the spirit of animals goes downward into dust?

22 So I saw that there is nothing better for men than that they should be happy in their work, for that is what they are here for, and no one can bring them back to life to enjoy what will be in the future, so let them enjoy it now.

( by the wise man several 1000 years ago .. not much is different .. not really)
Quote:
How many years can a mountain exist
Before it's washed to the sea?
Yes, 'n' how many years can some people exist
Before they're allowed to be free?
Yes, 'n' how many times can a man turn his head,
Pretending he just doesn't see?


The now very classical and wellknown answer, the chorus,
goes:

The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind,
The answer is blowin' in the wind.


/Bob Dylan 1962
- not much is different now .. not really, 46 years later!!!

Ah, but the "routine" is how we develop discipline. I, for one, enjoy a routine.

The problem with a routine, however, is that it can become a rut. Once the rut is deep enough, you can no longer see out and forget how to dream, how to do the unexpected, how to break with tradition and do something new. For that matter, if you're chasing the wind you are going with the flow. You will only go where the wind chooses to blow. To go anywhere else requires a different strategy.

Well said Grey.

I for one am letting the wind blow me back home for now. Perhaps I will be running against the wind...against the wind...
one day again.
