Tell Me Again Why I Shouldn't Become a Tibetan Lama
I think the reason Tibetan Lamas are considered so cool is because they sit alone on mountains and contemplate their navels.
Sure, it may not be that exciting, but at least they don't have to deal with people who ask too many questions, dodge too many answers, make plans and break them, set appointments and end up being late for them, call and wake you up, forget to call because they fell asleep, say yes when they mean no, now when they mean later, and other related annoyances.
Lately I've felt like I was walking fast in the wrong direction, in high heels on a moving sidewalk that's covered with tiny ball bearings.
While I realize I have no control over others and their WTF notions & actions, there's one person I can control: me.
So, today I am stepping off the moving sidewalk, kicking off the high heels and sitting down. By myself. In a quiet room.
I have e-mail. I have voice mail on my landline and cell.
Leave a message, I'll get back to you.
