ho hum. i went to breakfast/lunch with kevin today at an excellent little french breakfast cafe called ghini's (at prince and campbell for those of you in tucson :). very yummy. now mom's fixing a steak and lobster dinner... mmmm. :o)
i finally went to bookman's last night with lots to trade. they only took about half my stuff, but i ended up with about $32 in A trade and $58 in B trade. woohoo! i got an ani cd and a tori amos cd, and a movie called "arizona dream" with johnny depp--very strange, i still can't figure it out... but i liked it. and let's see... a few books, including hesse's "sidhartha", a poetry collection or two, a collection of short stories, and a book on astrology/karma. yay, stuff to read!! :)
this is from a book i got called "one minute nonsense" :
'The Master never let a statement about God go unchallenged. All God statements were poetic or symbolical expressions of the unknowable; people, however, foolishly took them as literal descriptions of the Divine.
When the preacher said, "This much I know about God, that he is wise and good," the Master countered with, "Then why does he stand by helplessly in the face of evil?"
Said the preacher, "How should I know? What do you think I am, a mystic?"
Later the Master regaled his disciples with this Jewish tale:
Two men sat sipping tea in silence. After awhile one said, "Life is like a bowl of lukewarm soup."
"Like a bowl of lukewarm soup?" asked the other. "Why?"
"How should I know? What do you think I am, a philosopher?"'
