The Celts are a different bunch, overall. Independent individuals but generally without the ego burden.
This is, obviously, not always true, but more often than not it is.
Give an Irishman a potato and a Guinness and he's happy enough.
That's Neolithic.
He'd be overjoyed if, on top of that, he had a stone axe to dig holes with.
What's not to admire?

It's good to see someone who doesn't care about being taken seriously.
As for the Irish: Brett Stevens said it best: they are Neolithic.
Not a bad thing, really. Beats the crap out of what I've seen of 'modern'.

Experience indicates that there are many people who will never overcome the rule of ego.
In this lifetime, anyway, if you subscribe to the idea of reincarnation.

I never did like tattoos; certainly was never tempted to indulge.

Intellect is a man's worst enemy, if it is exalted over all else.
I see, Dead Last, you have discovered this.
Exciting, to my wife and I, to read about it.

When your life is right on the line, through whatever external stimuli, you become able to disregard all the mundane dross that stops you from being fully alive. And focus exclusively on survival.
The very idea of survival is one rarely even considered in our modern non-society. People get completely out of touch with the reality of it being the single most important thing there is.
Even to the point of contemplating - even going with - suicide.

Whoa! CB900F? That would do it.

That's the spirit! It really, really is.

Wringing every last erg of performance from a motorcycle on a twisty road is a good substitute.
Your life in your hands. 
Possibly fatal, though.

Hold that image and develop it!
I call thoughts like that 'mackerels'. Slippery, and difficult to hold.

It's a strange concept, this distraction.
I know it, but don't know it. Not any more.
I remember it, sort-of, as an unconscious drifting away from the present.
Like an ocean liner, at a dock, with cast-off mooring lines.
But I don't seem able to do it, now.

I had a moment, in the height of summer, shooting arrow after arrow into the bull of my target.
I might as well have been placing beans in a can, on a table, in front of me. I couldn't miss.
As if that intervening fifty yards was only inches.

There was nothing kitty-kat about this specimen.

This is Zen.
Those who do not know it can not conceive of it.
Those who do, barely acknowledge it, when it becomes so transparently natural.

What an industrious chap.
Your choices would have been mine, only a short time ago.
Age quite suddenly makes its presence felt.
Conservation also urges one to consider conserving oneself.

Interesting, in the extreme.
This spirit animal may well have employed one, to reach another.
Subtle power, but cautious, is its message. Take note!
A leap in awareness.
You make a likely candidate.
