Asymptote

Dreamt that someone was chasing me and my colleagues and students across campus. Shooting at us. I turned to see four bullets coming right at me.

Woke up before they hit, feeling strangely calm. It will come to this some day, won't it? Something like it.

Turned over and went back to sleep.

Awesome. This, in essence, is the philosophy of Zen (or some such thing)

ooh nice oxymoron :-D
although to be all introspective, i should admit that i hadn't had a snifter last night.
*off to remedy that*

mt:
exactly. turn over and go back to sleep.

revealed:
yeah, that. or the whole lebowski thing.

km again:
i think that's less a philosophy, and more a cult, no?

ph:
hang in there. watch some lebowski.

Just to turn the Boss' words on their head, one must learn to rise above what one cannot control.
