    Yane, can you at least ask for clarification? Why did she stop? How did the hope of the age dissolve?

    I'm betting her back began to hurt.

    Could be, and this could be a stretch I'll admit, she just doesn't care.

    This thread is now better than God Exists.

    This is really hard to accept. If I could at least just hear it from her own mouth?


    I mean, I only wanted good things when I started this thread. I just don't understand where it went so wrong. What is it that befalls human endeavors? What drives us to this? One wonders about life sometimes.

    A great and noted poet once put it best:

    Life's a bitch and then you die. That's why we get high, 'cause you never know when you're gonna go.

    Dude, she still has no furniture. So she went out and got a mat to sleep on. Cut her some slack. She's getting older.. sleeping on a hard floor hurts after a while. It's not like she became this horrible person, suddenly. :p

    I don't mean to accuse. She lived a glorious, noble life for years. I only wish I could understand more. That I didn't praise her properly when it was still happening. Maybe if I had, it never would've stopped? I am just trying to work through all my regrets now.

    What? How?

    You have to be one of two things Wocky;

    1) A masterful troll, better than the best by margins humans cannot comprehend, or
    2) Barking mad.

    The assertion that lying on the floor to sleep is somehow noble just defies belief. Implicit in the suggestion is that to sleep on a bed is ignoble. Crazy.

    Hmmm... unless, of course, your intent is to be a modern day Guatama, and this is your experiment with asceticism; in which case I wish you luck on your quest for nirvana.

    I object to the implication that he can't be both.

    Me, I'm still waiting for the punchline. But then I remember who the OP is and realize that that punchline will never come, or otherwise will not make any sense to most of us.

    Hey Jabba-wocky, does it cause fresh pain when quoted in this format?

    Did it seriously take you over 130 posts to figure out I was praising the practice of sleeping on the floor?

    Allow me to make my suggestions explicit. She lived a marvelous, extraordinary thing in this part of her life. You, on the other hand, You, on the other hand, have behaved with utterly ordinary, slothful, unremarkable average-ness. Rather than feeling any shame or impulse to better yourself, you sit here gripping about how its unfair you can't get a gold star for your sub-par efforts. The moral choice is clear. We should all honor her memory passing the story along until the next champion arises who can blaze a trail to a better life. We can never forget.

    And yes, while re-quoting is quite the fresh wound, we must persevere.

    Last night my son asked me to explain Camus' "Myth of Sisyphus" essay. I pointed him to this thread. Jabba-wocky represents the arbitrary and petty wrath of the Gods. We're Sisyphus rolling the boulder uphill. It's that moment when we recognize and acknowledge the absurdity of our fate that we are truly free.

    And when we realize that letting this thread roll over us will not kill us.
