Thanks for your "heads up."
Sometimes I get too steeped in reality after being attacked by a vicious pack of truths.
I have to remember that latter day justification is all about perception with those who betray their roots.
At this point, poor Norm likely believes he's really somebody else. I can't imagine who that is.
The toughest thing to realize is that you really do not need the bowl. Btw, can you shed some light on this for me: in the western depiction of Diogenes, esp. paintings, the bowl features large, as the key moment of epiphany. However, in the eastern European art, D. is more frequently associated with a barrel. I never understood why. Do you have any idea? I would really like to know, minimalist that I'd like some day to become :).
