"If, therefore, any be unhappy, let him remember that he is unhappy by reason of himself alone." Epictetus

Would you want to go 13000 feet underwater or into space as a "holiday"?

I don’t get it…

I do an occasional "adventure" holiday where I might go to some extremely remote location, mainly to fish. Just a couple of weeks ago I spent a weekend in a cabin with an outhouse, no running water and no electricity. Took 8 hours of rough track to get there. But that’s it… Other than the extremely low risk of bears I wasn’t really placing myself in unusual or extreme danger.
My idea of a holiday usually involves sun-benches, beach-towels and my daily intake of fruits through varying Margaritas.

I don’t get these "adventure" holidays. The people that want to get blasted into space in some experimental made-by-lowest-contractor rocket or sink 13000 feet under the surface of the ocean to see some rusty remains in total dark. Spending 24 hours locked in a metal tube – being descending or ascending – holds no appeal to me.

R.I.P Tina Turner

I’m into punk, rock, 80’s new-wave and a dash of prog-rock…
Yet Tina Turner was my Queen.
Maybe because she was a punk – in the way she rose up from the abuse and misuse she experienced from Ike and made her own musical experience.
Rest in peace Tina:

Through your blessing, grace, and guidance, through the power of the light that streams from you:
May all my negative karma, destructive emotions, obscurations, and blockages be purified and removed,
May I know myself forgiven for all the harm I may have thought and done,
May I accomplish this profound practice of phowa, and die a good and peaceful death,
And through the triumph of my death, may I be able to benefit all other beings, living or dead.
