Mindfulness

I say the quote is meaningless. Petty things and emotions are just as likely to be preceded by or for that matter, accompanied by silence.

@stanleybmanly – Can you sum all that up in one word?

josie's avatar

Silence

I don’t believe it is not meaningless

@josie -Do you know much about hunting whales?

kritiper's avatar

Anticipation.

raum's avatar

Life.

Profound things and emotion of things are all around us.

@raum-I am surprised at all the seriousness here. Or am I?

josie's avatar

Better to sleep with a sober cannibal than a drunk Christian.

raum's avatar

Haha…not serious! Just matter of fact. I think the profound is found in every day things.

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

@josie Better not to sleep at all. :)

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

@raum- That is certainly true. Now let’s hear a f’d up answer, please.

raum's avatar

LOL

All profound things, and emotions of things are preceded and attended by an exceptional bowel movement.

I’m always more relaxed and in tune with the universe after a big dump.

Better?

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

@raum -Yes! I confess that I laughed out loud at that. :)

@stanleybmanly Wish it were that simple. My gut is a mess. :/

Probiotics. ;-)

raum's avatar

@Brian1946 Already tried that. Looking like celiac most likely. Still have to get my endoscopy done. :/

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

@raum – My apologies- I thought he was kidding around ,

Brian1946's avatar

@lucillelucillelucille

As a response to your OP, you’re right- I was kidding. :)

@raum

My apologies also. My response was also intended as a casual suggestion for you, and I’m sorry that probiotics didn’t work. I seriously hope that the endoscopy reveals something that’s temporary and more benign than celiac.

raum's avatar

Thanks. But not a big deal. Considering my screwed up gene pool, could be worse.

Actually would be a relief to pinpoint what exactly is going on. Not knowing sucks. :/

Brian1946's avatar

Have you tried reducing your gluten intake?

I know what you mean about the possibility of things being worse. I’m allergic to the pollen from my favorite tree on my property, but I’m thankful that I don’t have an allergy to sunlight.

raum's avatar

Already went gluten-free. Though once in awhile will get accidentally glutened.

Did you know regular M&M’s are GF, but snack size M&M’s are not? Yeah, good times.

Dutchess_III's avatar

That makes no sense @raum. M & Ms are not made from cereal grains.

raum's avatar

Cross-contamination.
Manufactured in different factories.

Brian1946's avatar

@raum

I did not know that! I would never have guessed that snack-size M&M’s were processed in a grain silo. ;-o

Brian1946's avatar

@raum

If you went gluten-free and the symptoms persisted, maybe it’s just a benign polyp or a postage stamp.

What I do to avoid postage-stamp ingestion, is use my credit union’s electronic bill-paying service.

Dutchess_III's avatar

Or use self sticking postage stamps. Lord I haven’s seen one you have to lick in years.

”[taking it to PM so @janbb doesn’t kill me]”

Oh no! My lurker-detector shows that @janbb is already here!
