LESSONS OF THE MASTER

When many years ago I was complaining to my friend Hubert Selby Jr. about being caught in a vicious circle, he said, "Michael, dig the circle."

Well, yea, but at some point you need to admit that it is indeed a circle and thus probably static.

Why did it have to be vicious? Make it a virtuous circle. -Mary Poppins

Year ago, when riding my bike along Beverly Boulevard near Jan's (24 hr. favorite cop restaurant) I rode by a guy talking with two people and heard this snatch of conversation: "From the moment you're born to the moment you die, it's all one big circle of sh*t". While I do not personally ascribe to this viewpoint or attitude it came to mind with all this "circle" talk.

Well, there is some literal truth to that in a way Robert, if we take sh*t in the broadest sense of the word as often used to mean most everything. The cycle of life really, in that way.
