on counting sheep and fleeting time

Wednesday, July 21st, 2010

First of all, it does not work. At all. And it’s not because I am a perfectionist, and demand a fairly well articulated appearance. Or because I am a seeker of truth, and try to engage them in a frank conversation – which kept the total of sheep at a steady 2. But because the entire exercise is so deeply existential in nature, and, hence, cannot be solved.  To sleep, perchance to dream, escape from reality, anticipation of non-being – actually more like wasting being time on presuming non-being – and all at expense of very lovely, fluffy critters. And they are lovely if you get to talk to them for any significant length of time.

That brings us to the second of all, which I need to make short due to the lack of time, and which can be summed up as –  our experience with time is all our fault. We beat, waste, and throw it away. Some even go as far as to deny its existence. Truth of the matter is —  time is helpful. Things change, and time keeps track; people change, and time heals.  But change is the one and only lesson, it’s just not as evident when you are counting sheep.

But to the point, today’s, July 21, 2010 Puff’n’sip is on! Tonight is Brown LQ Puff’n’sip. What the..?!! – you ask. Read on! – I answer.

Brown LQ night will include:

-a flight of selected bourbons

-a flight of selected rum

-a flight of selected scotches

Selection would change with time (we’ll work on constantly improving those), but should provide you with an excellent gateway to the delightful world of brown liquor.  NOTE: Brown LQ night is in NO way is aiming at  limiting your choices. Drink whatever you want. Really.

But come and join us @

Lots of love,

Big Red.
