Inessential connotations

Coiled individually as a collective, past-tensed as futuristic backwash or just, the becoming of Winter. Contributing to, without official band practice or business restraints. Preserving reassurance in abstracted technological advances through means of apple cider can’s, resting at the foot of decorative Buddha’s showing insufficient enlightenment, yet material trendiness.

      Hilarious! Of my two buddha’s, both are skinny and both were gifts. In the Asian newspaper the other day, there was this big advertisement saying ‘Buddha statue offensive’, which I found really interesting and which caused around 5-6 giggles in a row.

      • As you may know, it was the Chinese who created this iconography of the grossly obese Buddha – fatness denoting happiness in their culture. According to the orthodox scriptures, he was incredibly thin, having lived quite an ascetic life for many years, of course. The Burmese Buddha rupas are quite exquisite in my opinion.

        Nope I never did know that previously. But I did know about the fat-happiness link in China, bless. Interesting indeed!

        Just had a look at the Burmese Buddha’s and yes they are quite lovely ๐Ÿ™‚ Do you have one of those?

      • No, I don’t have one, and feel the best should have remained in Burma/Myanmar, from where they were misappropriated. I just have a few cheap resin or wooden contemporary ones which I was given at various times in the past. ๐Ÿ™‚

        I wonder if were were to sift all the misappropriated jargon from this world, just to see what is left, what would be left?

        Yeah I guess, haha! Do you think all stuff is misappropriated?

      • Perhaps it’s fair to argue that an awful lot has been misappropriated over the course of history. If we think of how for centuries richer nations have plundered the resources of poorer ones in unfair deals, or simply theft, to appropriate commodities such as timber, metals, clothing, foodstuffs, artworks and a host of other things, then that could fairly be called misappropriation. Then we could talk about the misappropriation of labour which was done on an industrial scale.
