An exciting choice!

I was biking and the wind was blowing against me.

I took it personally.

And there is my religion in a nutshell. But the nutshell wouldn't open, and so I have no religion.

To ridiculously simplify things, the spiritual ideal of the West is Thankfulness.

And the spiritual ideal of the East is Peace.

But the spiritual ideal around here is to hold every last atom of the Universe personally responsible.

You must choose whatever way you want, of course. On the one hand you have two bloated histories, their hands dripping with blood. On the other you have an occasionally amusing blogger, quietly sitting here in anonymity, whacking a recalcitrant nutshell with large rocks.


  1. I can be your first pope? I promise to gorge myself in medician splendour!

    1. The Pope thing seems, er, pretty Western, but with you promising to gorge yourself in Medician splendor I can only answer YES!

  3. Hurray! I'm on it! Now to hammer out a heirarchy.


If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
