Meditation is a long journey, a pilgrimage into the mind itself.

Generally, we become aware that there is such a thing as meditation after the material world has lost its attraction to us, and previous desires no longer bind us to patterns of fear, greed, attachment, and ramification.

We then seek through philosophy and religion to answer the questions, "Who am I? Where did I come from? Where am I going?"

Space Cowboys

Does this sound like a reference to Bush and the Boys?

I see the show downs, slow downs, lost and found, turn arounds

The boys in the military shirts

I keep my eyes on the prize, on the long fallen skies

And I don't let my friends get hurt

All you back room schemers, small trip dreamers

Better find something new to say

Cause you're the same old story

It's the same old crime

And you got some heavy dues to pay

I'm a space cowboy

Bet you weren't ready for that

I'm a space cowboy

I'm sure you know where it's at

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

~~ 'Space Cowboy', The Steve Miller Band

Bois D'Arc Fence Posts

Ruth Ann and Lynn come down from Baxter Springs

That's one hell raisin' town way up in Southeastern Kansas

Got a biker bar next to the lingerie store

That's got them Rolling Stones lips up there where everyone can see 'em

And they burn all night

you know they burn all night

you know they burn all night

Ruth Ann and Lynn they wear them cut off britches and those skinny little halters

And they're second cousins to me

Man I don't care I want to get between 'em

With a great big ol' hard on like a old bois d' arc fence post

You could hang a pipe rail gait from

Do some twisted sisters 'til the cows come home

And we'd be havin' us a time

Uncle Slayton's got his Texan pride

Back in the thickets with his Asian bride

He's cut that corner pasture into acre lots`

He sells 'em owner financed

Strictly to them that's got no kind of credit

'Cause he knows they're slackers

When they miss that payment Then he takes it back

He plays that Choctaw Bingo every Friday night

Drinks that Johnny Walker at that Club 69

We're gonna strap them kids in give 'em a little bit o' Benadryl And a cherry coke
we're goin' to Oklahoma Gonna have us a time

~~ 'Choctaw Bingo' from Live In Aught Three by James McMurtry and the Heartless Bastards

The First Days

Well the first days are the hardest days, don't you worry any more

'Cause when life looks like easy street, there is danger at your door

Think this through with me, let me know your mind

Wo-oh, what I want to know is, are you kind?

It's a buck dancer's choice my friend, better take my advice

You know all the rules by now, and the fire from the ice

Will you come with me, won't you come with me?

Wo-oh, what I want to know, will you come with me?

God damn, well I declare, have you seen the like?

Their walls are built of cannon balls

Their motto is "don't" tread on me"

Come hear Uncle John's Band, playing to the tide

Come with me or go alone

He's come to take his children home

~~ 'Uncle John's Band' from "Workingman's Dead" by the Grateful Dead

Toss the book into the air to see what page is delivered....From 1,000 Places To See Before You Die our toss brings us the page about the Trans-Siberian Express. Tis the world's longest continuous rail line stretching almost 6,000 miles or one-third of the way around the Earth. Rember to jump nude into the snow!

Wet Cement

"Now not just his feet but his legs to the knees were exposed. Irving rose from his kneeling position and offered his arm, and Bo Weinberg took it, just like some princess at a ball, and delicately, gingerly, placed one foot at a time in the laundry tub in front of him that was filled with wet cement. I had of course seen from the moment I had come through the door how the tubbed cement mad a slow-witted diagram of the sea outside, the slab of it shifting to and fro as the boat rose and fell on the waves." ~~ Billy Bathgate
