“During a class on east Asian studies, I took a field trip to a Buddhist monastery in the middle of a cornfield in Minnesota, for a feeding of the ghosts. It seemed so absolutely important but so completely detached from its surroundings. It was powerful and bizarre.”

“I have. It was overall a good experience.”

“I tried to meditate, but it was really hard to let my mind go blank.”

“I couldn’t get relaxed enough, but I think it’s a wonderful thing. ”

The word Goldwater really uses was nuts but the press changed it, I figure Jerry would have enjoyed that so much more anyway. A kick and a lick for ole Jer.

Look a kook with licks for kicks.

Indyan loves Tinky Winky. Every time He plays an old Tinky Winky tape He giggles uncontrolably. I think you mistakenly hit the K when you meant to hit the L key since they are right next to each other on most keyboards. It's common error that spellcheck doesn't catch.

"He is purple — the gay-pride color, and his antenna is shaped like a triangle — the gay pride symbol. Tinky Winky is gay." Falwell

"I think every good Christian ought to kick Falwell right in the ass. " Goldwater

Meditate on that.

If I were to meditate, I'd not make it off my couch on a daily basis. My anger and bitterness is fueling my existence at the moment...

T_O_B,
If BABBOY's self-pleasuring in his cascading water mastubatorium counts, so does my moments of quiet private solitude

I don't think taking a dump counts, but what do I know?

OH, I read the question all wrong...I thought it was asking about mediation. Now I see it reads 'medication'. Hell yes..I love my medications. I think I'm on some medications now.

Only when listening to today's Tom Sawyer. Talk radio has a way of putting me asleep at the wheel.

Mediation? Everybody wants mediation. As long as you can compromise it might work. But you must be willing to give something up.

I used to everyday and it's a wonderful and powerful tool but very difficult at times. Not so often now but that will be changing soon!

No, but I've done mastication three or more times a day for most of my life.

First, let me me meditate about my answer.

Okay, I'm ready.

What was the question, again?
