I see. I'm not sure why I thought one could construct a new personality of one's choosing. That was quite funny when I read it back.

Speaking of funny stuff, I was reading Zen Flesh, Zen Bones the other day. It's a collection of short stories. After reading the Announcement with Tanzan and his sixty postcards I laughed with such vigour. Even the liquid around my eyeballs could not contain itself. I'm not even sure I understood it in its intended way but it gave me joy. :D

Thanks for the link :wink:

"Zen Flesh, Zen Bones" has been in my library -- but I couldn't find it just I ordered another copy!! I do remember enjoying it...there is a lot to laugh at, for sure!
