The buddhists say that the correct way to live is to free yourself from all desire, to cease wanting. But if you stop wanting what is there to get you out of bed in the morning. I don't mean wanting a new car or a bigger house or whatever, I mean wanting to believe, to hold onto something to believe in. Looking for that trail of breadcrumbs to follow and believing that they are going to lead you to someplace worth spending half a lifetime finding. It's true that the breadcrumbs can begin to look a bit stale and thin on the ground as we grow older and sometimes it feels like it would be the most sensible thing to do to say to hell with them and lay down under a grand old tree and be lulled off to sleep by the music of the wind amongst the leaves. Why not? Well maybe you might wake up to find that the birds had eaten the bread and you were lost for which way to go and you didn't have a single thought in your head to board your brain up agains the nihilistic wolf attack.

Every-Day Reality Triptych. Part I. Coffeemakers
Janusz Grzywacz
Has created a cult song about a coffee grinder
Poets are silent, when it comes to coffeemakers
They lack of an olde-worlde charm
Of sentiment
They're just useful and overly functional
Nobody imbeds into their spiritual life
In the end they're not cucumber soup
They've became attached so quickly to our habits
That we ignore them
And we remind about them only when we have to make coffee
But the time will come
That the coffeemakers will make the quickest decision in their history
About noticing them
Just like the small beings discovered by a good-hearted elephant
They will quietly clamor
We are here
We are
But they won't get to the ears of their owners
Cause none of them is able to yodel
To tap dance
Or even to form thoughts in an elegant way
Will be silent after this heroic attempt then
And will still perk coffee without any word
Only sometimes one of the brews made by them
Will turn out to be bitterer than the other ones
This will be the symptom
That coffemak
