life is suffering

Take this Marshmallow and eat it. . .

So, I read and was fascinated by the following New Yorker article. It captivated me for the better part of two weeks. My thoughts moved from candy, to drugs, to sex, to greed. The greed is the theme I'm exploring now. It's likely I will begin watching pirate movies. . .

Twitter response @theghostlight to above article: 

"Instead of getting obsessed with the marshmallow--the 'hot stimulus'--the patient children distracted themselves . . . "~Lehrer "Don't!"

If you are willing to wait, you can have two marshmallows.

Not addressed: kids want the marshmallow, but adults have learned to want the wanting of the marshmallow. How does this square w/ delay of g

Say we hide the marshmallow in a burka, does that make the marshmallow less of a distraction or more enticing?

I could go both ways here. Can't see the temptation = no temptation. Or, imagination creates dream marshmallow. Marshmallow in Eden? Eat?

"I couldn't help it. It just popped in there." "What? *What* "just popped in there?" "It's the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man."~*Ghost Busters*

How does one hide a marshmallow from ten thousand years of evolution?

When we are distracted by *candy* (or marshmallows), we are seeing packaging. Like the fox said though, what makes it special is invisible.
From The Director of Pie: *Requiem For A Marshmallow* What will you do for a second marshmallow?
I'm aware that I've jumped the *peeps* shark. Watched *Requiem For A Dream* last night. Have new slogan: "not even one marshmallow."

Tomorrow will be different.
Yesterday the marshmallow was drugs. Today let the marshmallow be sex. . .

Although I've been obsessed lately with *candy*, I actually work in the garden. Melons? Too soon. Peaches? Not yet. Green stuff now!

Been in the woods for a couple of days. No electricity, no internet. Lesson: It takes a good, long, pointy-stick to roast a marshmallow.

I think this garden is ready for a serpent.

Abe's Axe is a symbol. Like the firey wand of Hermes, it is the conduit for bringing into action manifestations from the creative imagination. He is not killing vampires so much as freeing living dead men. The great emancipator would like to bring you into the 4th dimension of consciousness. He is going to have to kill you to do this, though. Or, actually, just annihilate your ego to transport you. In this instance, his axe is the craft. A craft is both a transport and a skill. The magician's wand is both. A pen can be mightier than the sword. What's your craft? Use your symbol well. . .
