another busy last week, another busy past weekend. working long long hours at multiple jobs, again. traveling away from my city on the weekend to other cities to do a bunch of stuff, again. all in all, its good and great. but i still feel like i havent sat down in a long time.
took a bus from philly this morning in some antic attempt to make it to my office at a decent hour. the bus fills up with all sorts, and included in the cast is a bunch (gaggle?, flock?) of tibetian monks. i love this, and find it curious.
it was a china town bus, and our route into ny was through lower manhattan. we are suddenly in tons of traffic and i am watching the minutes tick by (a habit i dont usually subscribe to, but was trying to get to my desk this morning). i look out– where are we? whats the problem? and, we are in front of the courthouse, and there are hundreds of people there. for bernie madoff’s trial. the monks get off here. why, i wonder?
a guy that didnt look like a religious kook, or any sort of kook, at all, is standing outside the mob of people with a sign that says ‘to forgive is divine.’ i wonder if the monks had a similar motive for being there.
or maybe there were just in town for some good chinese, and got off the bus a little too early.
ok- off to drink some raspberry wheat beer (yum!) and then take a walk in this beautiful weather (yes!). the perfect weather of life; a summer night, not hot, a little breezy. something you want to bottle and keep.
