I Just Want A Pleasant Meal

Thank you all very much for your kind comments. In a way I am glad about my illness; it has taught me that many people think more highly of my writing than I do.

Goddess bless you.

Hannibal Rising

Hannibal Rising, Thomas Harris' fourth novel about the egregious psychiatrist Hannibal Lecter, seems to me so far the best of the lot. I urge everybody to read this wonderful book (or listen to the audibook like me). If you don't read it, Hannibal may come and get you in the night. I shit you not.

Soccer Overseas

A habit obscene and unsavory
holds the Bishop of Boston in slavery
midst hootings and howls
he deflowers young owls
which he keeps in an underground aviary.

-- John Steinbeck

I Don't Know

Wavy Gravy once asked a Zen Roshi, "What happens after death?"

The Roshi replied, "I don't know."

Wavy protested, "But you're a Zen Master!"

"Yes," the Roshi admitted, "but I'm not a dead Zen Master."
