there is still a taboo against having a good time. Somehow life is not supposed to be fun. I have thirty or forty years left, or maybe its thirty or forty seconds, and i believe that enjoying this time may be the only thing that really matters.
Just when I think I have learned the way to live, life changes and I am left the same. The more things change the more I am the same. I am what I started with, and when it is all over I will be all that is left of me.

Perfectionism is slow death
Live as if everything you do will eventually be known
If the desire to write is not accompanied by actual writing, then the desire must be not to write.
Almost any difficulty will move in the face of honesty. When I am honest I never feel stupid. And when I am honest I am automatically humble.
Life is also a mixture of unsolved problems, ambiguous victories and vague defeats-with very few moments of clear peace.

JT,

Thanks for the first post. I think it was the most worthwhile thing I have read in quite some time. You should put your original message back up.

I think the writers friend Nat shows us all an example of how we can open our eyes and minds to all the world. Don't you think, especially in this country (USA) that we live in such a compartmentalised society? This along with all the fear that we are innundated with by our media and government makes the genuine connection we can make with our fellow man a great difficulty.

Good to be reminded we can live with a different attitude today. Thanks again for the original post. Sorry the rest of the folks here may have missed it. I guess they will have to click Zero's link to read it.

I like your 2nd post, but I loved the first one. Guess I saw it just in time.

A few months ago I was out walking with a friend of mine
who is a Gestalt therapist. A man walking from the other
direction smiled at us and said, "How are you doing?"
My friend didn't answer. He explained to me that the
question was phony since the man didn't know us.

Today Nat drove me through the little Spanish villages
of northern New Mexico. He waved and shouted greetings
out the window and asked directions in self-taught
Spanish. He stopped to chat with shopkeepers and spent
several minutes of warm conversation with an old drunk.
All day his face has been bright with love for these
people, and their liking of him has been immediate.
Nat is not yet enlightened enough to have reasoned out
the impossibility of spontaneous love, and, although
he does not know it, he has taught me one of the most
appreciated lessons of my life.
