"If we are ever to grasp our fleeting Zeitgeist, we need the whole round picture--politics, the Arts, slang, sexuality, food--the whole cascading shebang!

Monday, April 29, 2013 Quotes from the Book of Memes (3 comments)
We live by memes. We die by memes. We kill and maim by memes.
This is an attempt to show how absurd life can be when we simply accept/inherit/assume some slogan or concept we haven't thought through, felt through, for ourselves. I take a well-known quotation and turn it around simply by substituting the word "meme" for a word in the original. I hope it lights up some minds.

Thursday, January 31, 2013 "17 Camels: Can a Sufi Tale Heal Our Broken World?" (8 comments)
This is serious, ironic, capricious and penetrating! A quick study in deduction, induction... and seduction! A wild ride on a camel's back that makes us think... and yearn for a better world circumscribed only by the power of Imagination!
