Quote of the Day – November 22 2012

“Try the meditation of the trail, just walk along looking at the trail at your feet and don’t look about and just fall into a trance as the ground zips by. Trails are like that: you’re floating along in a Shakespearean Arden paradise and expect to see nymphs and fluteboys, then suddenly you’re struggling in a hot broiling sun of hell in dust and nettles and poison oak… just like life.”
― Jack Kerouac, The Dharma Bums

 

Of course it can happen the other way around, one moment stepping around quicksand and rattlesnakes, all of a sudden the trail clears and you gain certainty where you are… the next step is always a tricky one… or at least unexpected…after awhile the road becomes simply the road without any expectations, after all if you are unsure where you’ll end up then the road as someone said doesn’t really matter. Each moment becomes a crossroads and each companion on the road a scrying pool for self-understanding
Blessings, G

  1. Played a game of ladder and snakes, got up easy and bitten back dizzy, all due to the dice we played..reaching the top was driving us crazy, and ultimately the game stopped..on the cardboard only..and we continued to play this game in real life..dangerous sometimes , others entertaining and sheer delight..wanna fight :))
