Another view from my yoga mat

"But I was talking today to a friend of mine, and it came to me that Christ's image is just the perfect symbol for our civilization. It's a perfect event for us - you have to die to survive. Because the personality is crucified in our society. That's why so many people collapse, why the mental hospitals are full. Nobody can survive with the personality that they want, which is the hero of their own drama."
(Leonard Cohen)

"...There are heroes in the seaweed 
There are children
 in the morning 
They are leaning out for love 
And they will lean that way forever ..."
(Leonard Cohen)

I'm dying a little today, but no doubt I'll resurrect! In fact, I'm sure of it.

Sometimes I just don't want 'personality', my own or others. I want the Laurentian 'essence', not the 'persona'. Yes, that's I want, the 'essence' — in life, in people, in blogs. The 'persona' can be so exhausting.

I'm uninspired at the moment, but it will pass!

Best wishes, SW

"There are children in the morning. They are leaning out for love and they will lean that way forever." One of my most favorite lines in music.
