After Enlightenment, Chop Wood, Carry Water

Wow, Ziggy - it took female rejection and verbose waterclosets to get you back to the top of this peak, but the trip appears to be worth it. If you value meaningless platitudes, that is. For an enlightened sage, this old man's life is in remarkable turmoil - in the space of a few short weeks he's abandoned his celebrity wheeling and dealing in favor of a philosophy of militant obedience.

Ah, so this is why I was so disappointed the last time, Ziggy thinks, once again contemplating the unnecessary wear done to his hiking boots, which have now rubbed his raw blisters into impenetrable callouses. Meanwhile, enlightenment stands in full sight, as both erstwhile student and guideless guide balance on a grinning buddha.
