    "Flower Fresh, Mountain Solid"

    I remember sitting with a monk on a lovely summer afternoon. His name was Thich Nhat Hahn ("tick not hawn"). Children crowded around him much to his delight. 200 people sat in the grass. It was an idyllic camp in the mountains of California. This was in the early 1990's...

    Is It Fate?

    Stairway to Heaven

    Yes there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run, there's still time to change the road you're on.  Your head is humming and it won't go in case you don't know, the piper's calling you to join him. Dear lady can't you hear the wind blow and did you know, your...

    It would be cool if I meet a guy who acted just like me. Everything about me, he had or did or want to do. Same attitude like me.... That would be cool seriously
