*Wol Euler was guardian and commenter, filling in for Gaya.*

Wol Euler: hello crusty

My greeting was followed by roughly 10 minutes of silence during which Crusty dozed lightly outside the Playgoda. Then he woke and joined me.

Wol Euler: ah there you are :)

Wol Euler: I'm glad to meet you Crusty, I've been reading your name in logs recently.

Crusty Goldshark: Hi - you read things in trees? Wow!

Wol Euler: of course. What, don't you?

Crusty Goldshark: Not about people - mostly just about tress and their interaction with people trees etc

Wol Euler: fair enough.

Wol Euler: Have you tried the 9 second meditation or other practices?

Crusty Goldshark: 9 seconds is a bit long for me - might start with 1 second and work my way up

Wol Euler: hehehehe

Crusty Goldshark: :)

Wol Euler: whatever floats your boat. The main thing is to do it, all else will arise naturally from that.

Crusty Goldshark: I remember someone being impressed with my '3' prostrations - thinking I was talking in the hundreds - was talking of 3

Wol Euler chucles

Crusty Goldshark: logs float too

Crusty Goldshark: don't have a boat yet

Wol Euler: well, logs were good enough for Jim and Huck Finn ...

Crusty Goldshark: Yes two of my favourite books

Crusty Goldshark: Tom Sawyer

Crusty Goldshark: and Huck Finn

Wol Euler: I haven't read then in probably thirty years. I remember reading "Huck Finn" in high school english class

Wol Euler: I quite enjoyed it despite taht :)

Crusty Goldshark: yep I have not read them in a while

Wol Euler: maybe I'll do that over Christmas ...

Wol Euler: my niece usually supplies me wiht Harry Potters to read, but hte supply seems to have dried up.

Crusty Goldshark: Oh I am going in retreat in Second Life - or third Life if I find it

Wol Euler: ah, that sounds good.

Crusty Goldshark: Yep I have read all the Potter books - am still a Muggle thought ;(

Wol Euler: mmhmm :)

Crusty Goldshark: Did we win?

Wol Euler: for certain values of "win" ...

Crusty Goldshark: Good enough

Wol Euler: mmhmm

Crusty Goldshark: Are you a Buddhist or other cultist?

Wol Euler: I'm a Sensible-ist

Crusty Goldshark: I'm not

Crusty Goldshark: exact opposite

Wol Euler: I try not to believe things that contradict observable reality

Crusty Goldshark: OK

Wol Euler: while noting htat "observable" is neither complete or reliable

Crusty Goldshark: never observed reality - what iis it like?

Wol Euler: kinda messy, but it has its good bits.

Wol Euler: actually the mess is good too, in a way that you have to learn to like

Wol Euler: it's taken me a long time to get to this point :)

Crusty Goldshark: When will I end up wise with all this advice/ ;)

Wol Euler: mmmm, nobody gets wise just from hearing advice, you have to live it.

Crusty Goldshark: mess is good - do I not need to tidy up?

Crusty Goldshark: OK

Wol Euler: sure, you must do what your life requires.

Crusty Goldshark: that seems excessive

Wol Euler: just know that it is incomplete and temporary, and that while the -doing- may make you happy, the thing that you do probaly won't :)

Crusty Goldshark: maybe it requires less effort?

Wol Euler: oh, let me find you a website I discovered, william burroughs talking about Doing Easy.

Crusty Goldshark: Oh no not William Burroughs

Wol Euler: http://wikilicious.org/index.php?page=TheNow

Crusty Goldshark: Not someone I wish to give any time to

Wol Euler: oh yes!

Wol Euler: relax, he's not raving about drugs and/or sex in this one.

Crusty Goldshark: thanks anyway :)

Wol Euler: he has calmed down and become a Sensible-ist ...

Crusty Goldshark: makes no difference - a calmed maniac is still manic

Wol Euler chuckles

Crusty Goldshark: in part . . .

Wol Euler: and yet you describe yourself as "not sensible"?

Crusty Goldshark: OK must be time for me to go and meditate

Crusty Goldshark: BFN

Wol Euler: enjoy your 1 second :)

Wol Euler: take care, crusty. see you around

Crusty Goldshark: CU
