"Sometimes you have to make your own opportunities, and that's why I'm on TV. I wasn't going to sit around anymore waiting for the damn phone to ring. I had to create my own place. I've always done that."

Anyway we said a few little Buddha prayers from a little handout we were given. You could say the prayers in Buddha Bop happy talk or English. I didn't pray anything because I was in a state of utter confusious. BFF kept pointing to where we were up to but by the time I figured it out they were all finished!
Anyway, after missing the prayer nuptual, the smiling holy man HRH Grechla started an hour long talk on a whole lotta stuff that I philosophize about including the mind, meditation and form. But that's about all that I really understood. Those three words, MIND, MEDITATION and FORM. See, HRH being the very calm, peaceful and serene man of wisdom that he is, happens to be also VERY QUIET. Now this turned into a bit of a probrem for Brother Trigger who happens to be going as deaf as a post which is exacerbated at the moment because of his chronic sinusitis and 'this time of the year' allergies caused by molding tents, coochie grass, freezing temperatures and so on. Then HRH Grechla also had a distinct Tibetan accent which in the end didn't really matter because I couldn't hear what he was saying anyway. Still it was OK because as I tried to point my one good ear as close to the action as I could like Jumbo The Elephant, HRH kept smiling whenever he said anything humorous and that was all I needed as it turned out. The serene look of peace and tranquility did the trick. Everytime HRH said something ending in a flash of white pearly munchers larger than Luna Park, it was simply enough to know that just to be in HRH Grechla's presence was all that I needed.
PEACE, Brothers and Sisters..............
