charring the zen garden rake
July 30, 2010
Who had a little Zen sand garden on her desk. You know, one of those mini boxes of sand with a little rake in it? You are supposed to rake the sand in tense moments and it is supposed to bring you to a sense of calm contemplation. So what does my friend do with the little Zen sand garden and rake? Does she rake the little sand box smooth with the nice little rake? No, she whips out a Zippo lighter and chars the Zen rake for fun and amusement. I tell her, Don’t do that! You are mocking the forces of Zen feng shuiness!
Does she listen?
No. She chars the rake more just to be contrary.
My internet crashes. Her internet crashes. Internet crashes for associates in Texas, New York, Greece –– she knocked out the internet on three continents.
