Yeah, I didn’t read them beginning to end either, talk about elongated brain stammer, but sometimes you come right to the page, sentence or ‘word’ that you need to read…and something just speaks to you.

Or tells you that well hey, lilac really does go with a nice moldy green color…

  1. I went to a Dead Sea Scrolls exhibit once and was very disappointed in the lack of energy about them. I don’t know if it was the exhibit itself or what but I expected to at least have a sense of being the the presence of something important if not awesome.

    On the other hand, while I have not read the Tibetan Book of the Dead (although I have some version of it in my bookcase) I read most of the Tibetan Book of Living and Dying. That has so much wisdom and compassion it made it to my top 10 list of books to consult when the going gets rough.

    • I did actually read a bit of the Book of the Dead :) and yes, it is fascinating and so incredibly detailed. I haven’t looked at the Book of Living and Dying, but will definitely hunt for it. Can always use more wisdom.
