Unknown-7“We were somewhere around Barstow on the edge of the desert when the drugs began to take hold. I remember saying something like ‘I feel a bit lightheaded; maybe you should drive…’ And suddenly there was a terrible roar all around us and the sky was full of what looked like huge bats, all swooping and screeching and diving around the car, which was going about a hundred miles an hour with the top down to Las Vegas. And a voice was screaming: ‘Holy Jesus! What are these goddamn animals?'” Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (A Savage Journey into the Heart of the American Dream) by Hunter S. Thompson (1937-2005), American Journalist  (gonzo journalism) and writer

“What if our religion was each other. If our practice was our life. If prayer, our words. What if the temple was the Earth. If forests were our church. If holy water–the rivers, lakes, and ocean. What if meditation was our relationships. If the teacher was life. If wisdom was self-knowledge. If love was the center of our being.” Ganga White, teacher and exponent of Yoga and founder of White Lotus, a Yoga center and retreat house in Santa Barbara, CA

“Every pair of eyes facing you has probably experienced something you could not endure.” Lucille Clifton

  1. Seriously though, I was just about to shut her down and put my head, at least ON the pillow, when this caught my eye. Being a lover of the feline persuasion I couldn’t help but read it. I’m sorry but I haven’t had such a good laugh in, who knows. I am now exhausted from the effort and still laughing, if not quite so vigorously. I shall have a deep few hours of sleep now. Thank you and please continue your efforts.
