Life itself is kind of okay, it's us humans who make it complicated and nearly unbearable. Look at the apes in the trees - eat some, copulate some, and that's a day's work well done.
That's how it was meant to be ...


Forget that post. I sound like a scold. I mean I agree with you about humans--but I'm one of them and in no position to pass judgment on anybody.

Did you know you have grown more and more buddhist lately?
Thanks for the lesson! I mean it!


I hear gorilla tastes a lot like Soylent Green.


Very poetic. And very true. However, just the fact that there is something wrong with things, make it worthwhile. Like Marilyn's mole. And Las Vegas laughter.

"The simple pleasures simply don't add up to the incontestable fact that life, if you have your eyes open, is an abomination."

True, Mordantmouth. I'm all for laughing in the abattoir, at the sheer absurd horror. Jan Martin, I think the Buddhism comes from E.M. Cioran, who was no Buddhist but did believe in total detachment and inaction. As for gorillas, they taste like big hairy chickens with the capacity to thump their big hairy chests.
