– olive oil

Okay, misery-git party has ended. Why don’t you buy some of this olive oil? It’s very yummy, apparently, and supports a good cause. Click on the picture to make it magically grow larger (I hope – not really, so see the link below).

Okay, so if you go to this page, hopefully you can get a better picture. Scroll down, and it’s on the left bar with the same picture with ‘special’ stamped across it. While there, there are other things you can donate to, if you like, such as building playgrounds in Palestine and so on.

I need to post the story of the monk who carried the woman across the water. My new policy, I think. To carry women across the water. No, no, I’ll edit it in later and all might be explained.

Moving forward, not attaching too much weight to things left behind.

Here you go, edited in, as promised:

Two traveling monks reached a river where they met a young woman. Wary of the current, she asked if they could carry her across. One of the monks hesitated, but the other quickly picked her up onto his shoulders, transported her across the water, and put her down on the other bank. She thanked him and departed.

As the monks continued on their way, the one was brooding and preoccupied. Unable to hold his silence, he spoke out. “Brother, our spiritual training teaches us to avoid any contact with women, but you picked that one up on your shoulders and carried her!”

“Brother,” the second monk replied, “I set her down on the other side, while you are still carrying her.”
