Occasionally I wandered in where I was not wanted and gave truthful answers.
Sometimes I even did it deliberately. A little disruption now can prevent disaster later.

I do not fear the dark

This is what happens when you hit deadline and you can't think of anything to write. You bring out something from your poetry file. This started as a chant and developed into something else along the way.

Self-initiation

Most of the "self-initiated" aren't. We need to find ways to recognize that.

ZAPHOD BEEBLEBROX IV: I mean what exactly are you doing with your life?

ZAPHOD BEEBLEBROX: I'm being attacked by a Vogon Fleet.

ZB IV: Doesn't surprise me in the least.

Happy Towel Day!

Douglas Adams Passing Day

Douglas Adams was an author best known for the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy.

His stories seriously warped my sense of humor as a young man. Sadly, I've never recovered.

Here's to you, Douglas, you were a most improbable man.

“A cool frood who never quite knew where his towel was.”

Religious Truth

This is a page from the third version of Technopagan Yearnings. There are some formatting differences. Originally published at www.neowayland.com/C1982366546/E1211795882

Religious Truth

I maintain that Truth is a pathless land, and you cannot approach it by any path whatsoever, by any religion, by any sect. That is my point of view, and I adhere to that absolutely and unconditionally. Truth, being limitless, unconditioned, unapproachable by any path whatsoever, cannot be organized; nor should any organization be formed to lead or to coerce people along any particular path.
