Entering because I was making an entry in my mind while riding to columbus. My own little universe - so serious. Can't read what I am writing. What are we doing? our little minds - bodies -selves - tiny universes? a spinning orb of self - what are you so worried about now? what are those issues you have? why are you spending effort, in this moment, on them? Nobody else is - (side not: rise of media - at last we all have something to worry about in common) for the stories? - your own personal set of experiences? or jut waiting to hear others'? or what? Too busy outside the moment to enjoy the memory - re live it there.

Zen buddhism says (paraphrasing) that we must build a bonfire and burn all of ourself when we preform an action. Devote all your attention to that activity - forget yourself - stop the cluttered, simple mind. Non attachment.

Re writing the ending. Here I am at 10:34 pm on a wednesday -riding back to columbus passing exit 131 on I-71S - in the moment? Somewhat. bliss? no but good.. okay... alright... or lame.
