Anna, excuse me.
I was being frivalous.
In English we call the nerve near the elbow
the 'funny bone'.
So I was just making a silly joke.
Was it SERIOUS
Maybe serious is not the best word.
S/times it seems that egos persist
with argument instead of really listening.
The big symptom is wanting to have the last word!
When this happens ... its gets boring
and what I named (or mis-named) serious.
I am deadly serious.
If it's fun you seek........join the circus.
Knowing perhaps that Toombaru would say this
Longchenpa Rabjampa wrote back in the 14th century
Since things neither exist nor don't exist,
are neither real nor unreal,
are utterly beyond adopting and rejecting,
one might as well burst out laughing.
Dil pointed out:
Enlightenment is nothing personal
- insert clapping-
There is one thing he left out.
But doesn't say what.

Oh Anna ... while we have fewer paradoxes
downunder we do have the platapus!
Now there's a natural paradox.
Lives in water and burrow,
is a mammal (secretes milk through its skin)
has a bill and webbed feet.
And they are so cute .. also indicate that the
water/river is clean.
