Imagine this

Sitting together on the couch with my feet on the table watching the “What the Bleep do we Know” dvd while drinking a pot of Ayurvedic Vata tea and smelling the apple pie in the oven that should be ready within 10 minutes. (feeling the cramps in my arm of hand whipping cream slowly fading away). Hmmm, this feels good :-)

Kneeding the dough and hand whipping cream were my best deed of today. The rest of the day I hung around a little bit enjoying my absolute idleness. Tonight no heroic stories, quasi profound messages or amateur poetry. No, tonight I will be living reincarnation of the ultimate couch potato.

I won’t even think about the true existence of the apple pie or the particles that differentiate the pie from myself (or not as a matter of fact). Oh no, I’m just gonna eat the darn thing with loads of whipped cream on it. And more cream. Might as well eat the whole pie and flush it away with another pot of Vata tea.

Hmmmmmm...

Was it Sartre who said:

"I think therefore...I eat apple pie."

Sounds like a fine day DA.

I can totally relate to that feeling - a day where you just want to sit and veg. Been there, done that. Erm, still doing it. I guess it's time to get off the couch. (lol)

A fine day it was Gary; as Sartre would say "Three o'clock is always too late or too early for anything you want to do." :-)

Vata tea is a specific herbal tea that has its origin from the ancient Aryuvedic traditions. I came across it when visiting a Maharishi Yogi center for Trancedental Meditation Marybeth. I kind like it, puts me sound asleep anyway..

Time to walk Jackie Vee :-)

ooh - I do love a big mug of Vata tea. Don't have any here at work, but I do have some at home. Good idea - Vata tea and Tibetan book of living and dying. Sounds like a plan for the evening!
would have loved a slice of that apple pie too, but alas...

one of the true treasures of life is those moments alone with your vices.

and blue lagooned isles with thong clad babes.

Sounds like my cup of tea.

Maybe you can stop thinking about that cake and cream in terms of its purpose and meaning but rather see in it a new horizon in your thinking, an unfolding story ahead for us to hear about during the year.

best wishes

Dimitri...I think you meant it's time for Jackie to walk me. (lol)

Sounds great Dimitri. I've never met a pie I didn't like.
