Of Hunters and Giants

As I have always believed, there are gnomes and witches and fairies and giants out there in the wilderness. That's me on an Asian Food Expo with a true giant who seemed to have walked out from a basketball court to party on a Mardi Gras event - and- ended up with food people. I have following this fellow around in between eating bratwurst and sipping miracle teas. Drat! And with all due honesty, I do feel a little uneasy walking around in my cooking jacket because people keep staring at my breast pocket reading whatever is embroidered there. But this giant, you see, he doesn't care. He didn't bend down to read titles and positions but with that swipe of a hand, gestures, "The world is wide enough for you to enjoy."
Found this somewhere in the wilderness...
Nobody seems more obsessed by diet than our anti-materialistic, otherworldly, New Age spiritual types. But if the material world is merely illusion, an honest guru should be as content with Budweiser and bratwurst as with raw carrot juice, tofu and seaweed slime. ~Edward Abbey
