So...we should all be comatose? A night of hefty drinking will bring you to this state of no mind...and never no-mind....

Somehow I'm certain that the 'truth' of a hangover is qualitatively different. But then, I'm not zen.

Ask the Zen calendar that I'm pulling these ditties off of. Frankly, I've experienced various states on non-thinking, from stoned to what might pass as 'gnosis', and didn't think enough of any of them to want to repeat it.

Hello Butterfly:

<<You could be right Harlan, but what if you are wrong?

One's convictions lie on the floor if you are both sick as a dog and giddy as a school girl at the same time. Now, if you take pleasure before the pain, you pay the piper for the song after he's given it to you.

"To be or not to be" is not the question -
because you can't have one without the other!
