"Just be", said the Buddha. Actually, I have no idea if he said that but I love that expression. I say it to Cat and Evil Twin frequently but they must be deaf or brain-damaged as there is no change in their behavior.
This Buddha guy figured it out. It was a struggle but he found enlightenment and peace and before his statue could blink, he had Groupies. Even in current times, he has lots of followers, unlike Gouda, who only has a few followers, primarily a Canadian named Nicky who came up with this crazy writing challenge. Poor Gouda (and Nicky) must feel so under-appreciated. On the other hand, I bet I could down some wine with Gouda and be perfectly at peace.
