Waiting for Yourself

– is the worst thing.  Worse than Waiting for Godot.  www.theatrehistory.com/french/beckett002

Yes!  This is where my characters Ladimir and Oestrogen come from.  It’s my way of living with the fact that Beckett exists.

If you’re unfamiliar with Beckett, I am the wrong person to talk to.  I find him as depressing as some people seem to find LC.

I see my shoe.  What is my shoe?  Am I my shoe?  There is certainly a shoe.  At least one shoe.  But one shoe reminds me of another shoe.  And so the whole hideous process starts again…”  Wait, no – that last bit was more like “Black Books”.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_Books

I do enjoy Black Books – but more so when  I’m drunk

So, waiting for yourself.  If you’re waiting to sell your house or get a new job, or find a new partner or earn some more money – you’re really waiting for yourself.  And that’s the hardest kind of waiting there is.

You know what Gandhi said:  “Be the change you want to see”www.worldofquotes.com/ author/Mahatma-Gandhi/1/index.html

Wot no Leonard Cohen?

OK here’s one:

Cohen Koan

What is the sound of 30,000 hands clapping?

Farewell mes petits partisans

PS If you don’t know what a koan is, it’s a short phrase to meditate on.  It’s pronounced “koh-ann” and one original one is “what is the sound of one hand clapping?”

Dya gettit now?
