The mind is an unconcious conjuror, producing dreamy white rabbits of habit and multi-coloured hankerchiefs of thought from the empty top-hat of the universe. (Or so I'm told by the voices in my head at this late hour of the night.)
I do, nevertheless, try to take my top hat and cane and dance down the Fred Astaire staircase of emptiness with as much style as I can muster, especially considering the gale of cruel existentialism that roars through the ruined ballroom of life.
Perfect. This is indeed how it is. I am just very happy that someone most of us listen to has said it. The first part is as true as we can currently possibly assert and second is a sane reaction to it all. Once one understands, or allows understanding
, hindsight makes it all seem so simple. And it is, stripped of the ego of assumptions. Believe me, It's not often when one says to themselves, 'Yes!'. Certainly not this one, anyway. Thank you.
