Empty

I was driving to work today and every radio station was playing somber Smashing Pumpkins tunes. I felt kind of empty. Actually no, not empty, full. Full of sadness. And then I got to work and had leftover Rice-a-roni (the San Francisco treat). Now the emptiness has turned into panic. 5 minutes until unemployment, wish me luck.

People don't leave when they're happy.

    Oh, bummer. For whatever it's worth, I have convinced myself, and others would agree, that their albums have relatively evolved to be more uplifting. not that I think that helps you much. But I can'thelp but to comment when the Pumpkins come up. I can't wait for their June concert in Venice! I swear I'm gonna rock out to them even when I am sixty with my guitar and everything. ha ha ha (ok. at this point I am pretty sure I am just amusing myself)

    I am here making up for my last with this:

    A Zen master invited one of his students over to his house for afternoon tea. They talked for a while, and then the time came for tea. The teacher poured the tea into the student's cup. Even after the cup was full, he continued to pour, the cup overflowed and tea spilled out onto the floor.

    Finally, the student said, "Master, you must stop pouring; the tea is overflowing- it's not going into the cup."

    The teacher replied, "That's very observant of you. And the same is true with you. If you are to receive any of my teachings, you must first empty out what you have in your mental cup"
