lost in translation

I posted before on how I really like eating fortune cookies. And how every now and then you find a real gem of a "fortune." These two are my hands-down favorites of all time. Yes, I even framed them, they're that good.

click on them, and they'll get bigger. Or you can read the text below.

1. You are the only flower of meditation in the wilderness.
2. Alas! the onion you are eating is someone else's water lily.

Probably these have some meaning in an Asian culture.

I just wish some other flowers of meditation would join me in the wilderness…It's getting kinda lonely being the only one.

Or maybe a carrion flower :)

i guess i deserved that one, starting out with the fly traps. I think I'd really rather be a daisy. Or an orange rose. or a bright pink peony. or pretty much any flower that doesn't stink like rotting flesh!

At least you don't look like an ugly stick figure on a post it note!
