…dating advice…

careful of tall tales
spoken to impress a date
they’ll be remembered


…we are trapped, we are liberated…

shadenfreude or compassion
you choose the method

the buddha showed us our options.  in the end we all dissolve, but how that process unfolds is up to us.  with each breath, each moment we create the causes that condition our next breath, our next moment.  the trick then is to make good choices.

…animal cruelty…

people who leave their
dogs in cars deserve to have
neither dogs nor cars

it is rare for me to get all vengeance-y.  rarer still for me to mix witchcraft with whoop-ass.  but when i pass a dog trapped in a vehicle in a parking lot, i have absolutely no moral qualms about summoning up comfort spirits for the pooch and slapping a ‘no a/c’ ward on your vehicle so that you too can experience the conditions to which you are willing to subject others.  cracking the windows doesn’t make it okay.  ‘i’m just running in’ doesn’t make it okay.  i don’t know, perhaps i was a dog trapped in a vehicle in a previous life… but srsly folks – just don’t do it.
