Wile E Coyote, Buddhist

Over the addiction
  [vote for,

The Coyote has an Ahab-like compulsion to catch the Road Runner. It defines him. Fortunately the Coyote is a god, with immortal durability, and able to survive his many, many catastrophes.

Imagine now the Coyote, whiskers gray but genius undimmed, the whispering temptation of the Road Runner set aside like an old addiction. Now his passion is the building: the delight in the physics of magnets and explosives, the anvil and the cannonball. The building of amazing, terrible, dangerous things for the sake of the things themselves. The Road Runner, once muse, now watches with bird inscrutability as the Coyote falls, burns, explodes and then returns not out of hunger or purpose, but for the glory of the build.

       And here I just thought he had a really bad contract.

       This is so very zen. I love it for the sake of love. Love is all there is. From the ashes rises the God.

       right on, bliss!

       The strange thing is that he's still addicted. Just to something else.

       Like a bowl of petunias falling into a crater of whale blubber: OH NO, NOT AGAIN!

       Has anyone seen the series "Life" with Damian Lewis (Homeland, Band of Brothers) in which a cop framed with a brutal murder and imprisoned for 12 years is cleared, returns to duty and is assigned a new partner - yes, it's basically every cop-show ever, only the main character is a committed zen buddist and between solving crimes he eats fruit, talks in koans and thoroughly annoys (though simultaneously earning the eventual respect of) his colleges with (despite) his mystic bollocks. I've been quite enjoying it.   

       Anyway, that, reminds me a little, of this - or the other way around.

       That sounds very interesting, [zen tom].

...Ac us all.

       Oddly enough, Acme.com does exist, but is a very dull site.
