Many years ago

For N. B.

I played you my newly burnt CD with Kanika Banerjee songs

You said She sounds like a dying goat and laughed and laughed

If it’s not religion …

“If it’s not religion, they find other reasons – social status, envy, greed, skin color, dress code or dietary habits – to discriminate against each other, kill each other and make war. That’s human nature for you. We are programmed that way.”

– Sri Shantibindo in one of his more pessimistic moods

And the Lord spoke

“Let there be a Big Bang”

(So now we know that both the Bible and Science are right)

You are the call and the answer

“You look pathetic with your fangs half-bared, preparing to moan. I get your drift anytime.”
“Pathetic is not in my vocabulary. Self-image is not in my vocabulary. When I see myself in the mirror, I think it’s some other cat.”
Sometimes I find myself talking to the cat and then answering in a fill-in-the-blanks way because all I tend to get is some meow or facial expression that reveals some mild kind of curiosity at most.

A good day in the creative department

Salas, Throne: “Spent some time perfecting what could become a new line of reptiles on planet Earth. Worked on details, e.g. water ingress prevention through the nostrils. This after Trito told me that this could be improved, noting with some satisfaction that his latest frog line had no such issues.”

On finding oneself

“I’ve been finding myself for many years and keep discovering an elusive character.”

– Sri Shantibindo

I wish I could record
the fragrance of its flowers
and send it to everyone.
