  5. Lightning fast meditation in Asian traffic is something I’ve done a lot. Now, at this moderately unadvanced age of mine, I’m already prepared for death.

    I never understood the magic of some words simply put together. I never want to understand how it works. I dont know why this poem touched me, the BGK vibes, the beauty of the futility.. I had to smile at your mani ruined by the laundry. Although I bet the contrast between the white clothes and the black nails must have been stunning.
    The music you wrote today was divine, thanks for the present.

    • Thanks, I don’t know why either. This was written very quickly and I didn’t think it was one of my best but folks seem to like it. I think perhaps beneath the words there’s a certain ‘feel’ that eludes even the writer…. And yes the ‘beauty of futility’ is something we all understand.
