A real Buddhist does love things. He loves all things, but is attached to none of them. Like the Jedi.I'm too attached to be a Buddhist. I'm with them on the first two noble truths: life is suffering, attachment causes suffering. But I'm not all about ending suffering. Suffering is just one wonderful, ecstatic aspect of existence. The trick is to accept suffering and enjoy it.
A real Buddhist doesn't love things.
Buddha said "Life has a great need of the presence of love, but not the sort of love that is based on lust, passion, attachment, discrimination, and prejudice." I've tried the kind of love that doesn't involve those things, and it is as unsatisfying as chewing air.A real Buddhist does love things. He loves all things, but is attached to none of them. Like the Jedi.
The Riverwalk in San Antonio is one of my favorite places to visit (and eat)!Memebag loves ...
Mrs. Bag and I have scampered off to San Antonio for a few days. She's never been to The Alamo! The trip was mostly planned around visiting a pancake place that was featured on Food Network. We've got a balcony over the Riverwalk. The boats stop and the drivers tell the peasants how expensive our hotel is. I'm thinking about wearing a monocle on the balcony.
We're going to try the pancake place, eat a lot of Tex-mex and some steaks, visit some missions and wave at the peasants from the balcony.
I love that clip! Geoff is the best!Wow that skeleton looks much more lifelike than Geoff Peterson.

Today we hit Magnolia Pancake Haus. It appeared on an episode of Diners, Drive-ins and Dives or whatever that show is called. Mrs. Bag watches it. When we saw it last winter we planned a trip to San Antonio in the spring, but Mama Mrs. Bag got sick so we canceled that trip.It's been a few years, I wish I remembered the names. We alternated between authentic Texas barbecue and TexMex.

Anyway, it was everything Guy Fieri said and then some. Fantastic corned beef hash, perfect pancakes, and a decent cup of coffee. We're going back tomorrow to try the apfle pfanfkuchen fthing.
Then we visited the San Jose Mission. I love it the most of all the San Antonion missions because I built a large scale model of it out of sugar cubes in junior high. We saw the oldest mill in Texas there. Gristy.
We walked over to Mi Tierra for dinner, a famous touristy Tex-mex joint. I had marinated carnitas that were muy delicioso, and a giant frozen margarita.
It's 7:20 and we're both exhausted in the hotel room.
