6 Weeks: Split Second, Or Near Eternity?

August 11, 2009 at 23:34 1 comment

Das Piper pops his head up over his computer with a big-eyed look on his face:

“48 days? is that really all we have left?”

I lift an eyebrow at him:

“um, yeah, that’s just over 6 weeks, you knew that.”

My calmness doesn’t seam to sooth him at all:

“maybe you should pack your hospital bag tomorrow.”

This causes my eyebrow to move higher yet, I haven’t seen it since, I think I may have lost it in my hairline:

“We have 6 weeks! We could order Ikea furniture in that time!”

Maybe it’s because he’s a carpenter and has therefore never ordered Ikea Furniture, or maybe he secretly has and was impressed with their speedy service, I am not sure, but his eyes only got wider:

“Pack your bag tomorrow, please?”

Me thinks that Das Piper is getting a little jumpy already. . . I think it’s really sweet, but to me right now, in this very uncomfortable moment, 6 weeks feels like a lifetime.

What is a Pocket Buddha?

The pocket Buddha is a talisman, whether the pocket is in our mind or our jeans, the pocket Buddha is there to add a touch of Zen to our lives. He smiles from his dark penny and used tissue filled abode and reminds us simultaneously to go with the flow of our lives and to keep our goals, hopes and dreams ahead of us. At least one moment everyday, the satisfaction of a project completed, the taste of a meal we managed to make without burning, the extraordinary patience we somehow managed to show in the most frustrating of times, the pocket Buddha throws us a pocket-lint sized piece of nirvana, and for that I am very grateful.
