    •  I really like this post. Every now and then I (6+ / 0-)

      have a dream where I'm a poet in some foreign language which is sort of strange and wistful because I'm not fluent in any foreign language, and as about as far from having poetic gifts as one can be.

      But as I am playing my guitar, watching David Letterman and winding down for the day, I was simultaneously scanning your comment and having a weird duju-vu-like  flashback to this dream think for a moment that I was reading poetry in a foreign language and sort of almost understood it.

      Mildly confused, the part of my brain that was reading, (as opposed to the parts playing guitar, watching TV, and thinking about my son's plans to visit on Thanksgiving,) kept  rereading your comment, searching for you comment thinking isn't this amazing I can actually understand this, and sending out signals to the rest of my mind to pay more attention.

      Then I realized this was jims qkw writing in short hand in OND.

      It was cool and reminded me of the article from long ago in OKE main text suggesting that it is experiences that give us lasting joy.

      And, I haven't been drinking, or anything.

      I might print out your comment as a special koan. and frame it on my image thought starter wall.
