Julian sent me a cleaned up version of the photo I posted long ago. Someone from Wired wrote to me a while ago because they needed a photo of Larry Wall, so I sent them to Julian. They ended up not using his photos because they needed something more dull. How dull! It was probably for the sidebar in the Science + Religion series from the December issue.

(more on the ~2 week weblog break later. No, I wasn't on vacation or otherwise disconnected. I wish. I think.).

The Present Moment

| 1 Comment

A Japanese warrior was captured by his enemies and thrown into prison. That night he was unable to sleep because he feared that the next day he would be interrogated, tortured, and executed. Then the words of his Zen master came to him, "Tomorrow is not real. It is an illusion. The only reality is now." Heeding these words, the warrior became peaceful and fell asleep.
