Thanks Ogg! I love tentacles and new pills too!

Thanks for remembering Notanoptimist!

Edgar,
How can we complain about the downfall of western civilization when there's so much to love?

Tassajara monks practice Zen of firefighting
"Fire is not a stranger," said Stücky. "It's telling us to be here in accord with the reality of fire ... we're not really fighting the fire. We're meeting the fire, letting the fire come to us - make friends with it and tame it as it reaches our boundaries."

Schommer said the fire had strengthened his spiritual practice. Clearing the brush meant creating places where fire could not burn. He called it a parable to the mental practice of Zen meditation, where you clear the mind from external thoughts burning through.

"Before this, I was floundering," he said. "This has been an awakening for me."
