  One day, Chang-sha Ching-tsen (d. 868), one of the well-known Chinese Ch'an masters,
wandered in the mountain. When he was back just at the gate of the temple, the head monk asked him:
-Where have you been, Sir?
Chang-sha replied:
-I... continue...

vertical line Posted on Sep.23.2012 @ 12:25AM EDT by frozenaomi
Happy equinox, what's left of it.  I love fall.  It is easily my favorite season.  Its not that I relish to coming cold, but I am definitely a nigh time person.  And after today the night starts to win again for a while. 
=^.^=

Useless topic and "I'm back" message...commence!

Summer is getting to be too hot for me in my old age.  Im starting to think more of going north in the summer rather than south in the winter.

Im a night worker, sleeping by day, so its nice when people put their lawnmowers and weedeaters away for a while.

Also since Im a night worker, in the winter I get off work at 7 when the sun is just waking up, and Im off all day with it.  Most people are just going to work as the sun comes up, and just getting off work when its going down again.

Fall is nice.  Winter is too rainy here for me, in January, February, and March....

vertical line This one like some spoiled cute daughter I never had.
Out on the town last weekend, she started to speak with some other guy, me smilingly a-ok. She danced with him, me a-ok.  When she started to make out with him, I was like, eh, ok.. Picked up my phone, started to click around with like I was doing something serious before leaning over and friendly asked if it was a-ok for me to leave.
She was very much not a-ok with that, Phony bastard:)

Sometimes the *Zen Monk has nothing to lose, nothing to defend* thing

is harder to live with than other times.

One night in a bar with a friend, his girlfriend went off somewhere with some other guy.  I asked, *Arent you jealous or concerned*. 

He said, *I dont have a jealous bone in my body.  If he steals her, he can have her, he would be doing me a favor.*

One night in a bar, my date was dancing with everyone but me.  So when another girl asked to go for a motorcycle ride I went off with her for a while.  My date was all pissed off, so I assured her it wouldnt happen again, and stopped calling her. 

We hooked back up again, 30 years later, briefly.  But she got mad at me again, and I split again.  We are still friends though, and I get along well with her new boyfriend too.  No need for *tude*.  Just solve the problem.

Women cannot be contained or controlled, and it is folly to try.  They come and they go, and then they come back, and go again.... 

Thats okay, let them.  Just keep your own head clear, so they can.

Im a mild mannered character, at least on the surface, so I seem to atract the abusers of the female gender.  Thats another good reason to just stay on my own.  But then they ultimately find they have judged a book by its cover. 

Ive seen my dark side, and it makes Ghengis Kahn look like a brownie scout.  I am really a cold blooded killer down deep, and Ive never been as supercharged as when someone attacks me physically and provides an opportunity to let that out.

I try to stay prepared for anything, always have plans A thru Z ready to go.  One of them is to go down to the Womens Shelter and pick up some contracts to do some hits for half the life insurance.  Now that is the sure way to make money selling life insurance.
