... on awakening, today, had a strange little internal psychodrama as I stumbled outside the house to make my am cuppa of soy-milk, palm tree sugar, coffee, coconut cream, butter, and infant formula for 3+ year-olds ... I was on-stage, playing the role of a pseudo-wise-man in a play which was a tragedy, directed, by mistake, as a comedy. I turned toward an audience of faces blurred out by the foot-lights, and intoned the following aside:
The cheapest profound thoughts are those we borrow from others.

The most expensive profound thoughts are those we refuse to think for ourselves.

The most profound thoughts, that cost us nothing, surround us, but we are too ... 
And I "hung" there, a wide-eyed rabbit frozen in the glare of onrushing ontological headlights ... waiting for the last words to finish the soliloquy ...

... do you know what needed to be said to complete the last line ?

If you know, are you allowed to tell it to me ?

best, Bill
