Bon Appetit!

Quote from: Richard McLean, author of Zen Fables For Today,
Imagine Buddhism as an elegant buffet with these choices:

Just cruising the dessert tray
Enjoy the amusing anecdotes as well as chomping on the
rich nuggets of wisdom. Leaves a lingering sweet taste.

Digging into the salad bar
Discover pragmatic solutions to everyday problems. Find
old ideas that are as fresh as tomatoes picked in the field
that morning.

Pigging out on favorite pastas
Put into use tested techniques for modifying consciousness
and behavior. Have adventures as exciting as finding a new
Italian restaurant.

Filling up on brain food
Find insights into different systems of philosophy and thought.
Discover that Eastern thought is a different from Western
thought as seafood is from meat.

Dining on heavy-duty meats
Tackle new ways of dealing with profound questions such as:
Who am I? What is my place in the universe? And how do I
reconcile with my own mortality? Protein stuff!

So far, this is my favorite. I guess there is no accounting for tastes is there?

I was just about to tell you how much I like this new avatar of yours.
just like in a dream
you'll open your mouth to scream
and you won't make a sound

you can't believe your eyes
you can't believe your ears
you can't believe your friends
you can't believe you're here

I just finished reading A Handful of Zen by Camden Benares, and I was wondering if there was anything else by him?

"Smitty described the following voting system to Omar: Each candidate would have a yes or a no box after his or her name, allowing each voter a choice between voting for a candidate or voting against another one. Each negative vote would cancel a positive vote. This, Smitty explained, would prevent a politician who was elected from assuming he had a mandate just because a few voters found him a better gamble. When he asked Omar what he thought of the system, Omar replied, "I never vote. It only encourages them." -Camden Benares, Zen Without Zen Masters
