chimichanga

the next time, you forget a word – you know the “whatchamacallit” type, just say, “chimichanga”. Apparently, in Mexican Spanish, that is the derivation of “chimichanga” – a burrito food item.chimichanga

in no relation to that, the dolphins of Bangladesh are in danger due to over-population of man. Bangladesh dolphinSeriously the concept that “man has dominion over earth” is criminal. Why would such a flawed, emotionally-charged species be given dominion over other species? Because we have “thought” and “conscience” and “intelligence“? Oh chimichanga! A tree is far more capable than me – what, with making it’s own food, depleting pollution,tree covered in snow regenerating its own limbs, providing shelter and food to many – and looking fashionable any time of year without the help of designers.

a company called Pangea Organics sell their soaps in a biodegradable fiber box that are infused with seeds and will grow amaranth and sweet basil. Environmental capitalism, I say.

palm treeLao Tzu says: “he who controls others may be powerful, but he who has mastered himself is mightier still”. Now I am not going to try to contradict Lao, but from my perspective, “one who controls others is severely insecure and does not appreciate the inherent worth of all people” – and “one who masters oneself appears rather self-centric”.

having said that, it is lunch time here and I would so love a, uumm, what do call it … a chimichanga!

ciao chimi
