    Curiosity may have killed the cat, but it was a sausage-maker who disposed of the body.
    Note: more reason to not want to know how the sausages made...

    What do you know in your heart about the truth of life? Do you actually need more knowledge than this, or is this simple fundamental wisdom enough? What keeps you from living simple truths you know? What would you need to let go of to do so? What confusion and fear interfere with your compassion? What strength and trust would be needed to live wisely and well? How would you change your life so that your body, heart, and mind might become more unknowing, more transparent to this light within? Can you imagine knowing less and becoming wiser?
    Note: some more year-end-appropriate meditation questions, these from Kornfield

    In the beginning, I was put off by the harshness of German. Someone would order a piece of cake and it sounded as if it were an actual order, like “Cut the cake and lie face down in that ditch between the cobbler and the little girl.” I’m guessing this comes from having watched too many Second World War movies. Then I remembered the umpteen Fassbinder films I’d sat through in the eighties, and German began to sound conflicted instead of heartless. I went back twice in 2000, and over time the sound of the language grew on me. It’s like English, but sideways.
    Note: David Sedaris on foreign languages ftw. Hilarious article in the New Yorker.

    lest I catch a chill from one of those “drafts” which, as any former Yugoslav will tell you, often cause sudden death.
