Crazy Wisdom

Someone recently suggested to us that our picture of Tuchuck trotting (with hair flowing in the breeze) was reminiscent of an image from Tibetan Buddhism. Uh, what have you been smoking?! The boy has barely learned not to crap in the house, he's pretty far from any kind of spirituality.

Regardless, we were curious enough to check out the pee boy's doppelganger: turns out to be Dorje Trolo, an enlightened samurai, a manifestation of Padmasambhava, who brought Buddhism to Tibet. Dorje Trolo manifests "crazy wisdom" or wisdom "gone wild." According to teacher Chogyam Trungpa, crazy wisdom equates with being "completely awake," being able to tune out the confusion of the world around us and tune into a kind of primordial knowledge.

Uh, yeah, right. The "crazy" part fits Tuchuck pretty well--but he adds to confusion, forget enlightenment. But, hey, we would like to see him ride a pregnant tigress!

Dudes, my sissy has been pooping the house, too. Perhaps it is a part of a cosmic crazy connection. Frankly, I prefer the wisdom of keeping the poop OUTSIDE.

PS. I have been told my portly belly gives me a resemblance to Buddha. Rub my belly for wisdom, please!

Hi, Wally! Yes, we totally prefer the poop outside, too. Someone tell Tuchuck that--puhleeze!

Shall we rub your belly when you're roachin'?! :)
