..Like offering an Avalokitesvara figurine some spiral incense when news came of 150 civilians being killed by terrorists. Denial is pathetic, yet denial can carry some truth. I really didn't do anything, I was asleep when they were killing civilians in Paris. When I woke up I missed breakfast, it is after all daybreak in Singapore when it is evening in Paris. I took my medication instead, some cough syrup especially, and the local news told the world that Singapore Government is on heightened alert. All I had was incense and a zazen figurine, perhaps also an internet connection. I hardly use a weapon sharper than a razor these days since leaving the military.
