He was one cool dude! :-)
A few months ago I was perusing the used book store, hot on the heels of my dear wife which by the way was the only reason I was there in the first place, and came across "The Complete Works of Lao Tzu". I briefly skipped through the book reading bits and pieces here and there and knew this guy was right on the money. I had to buy the book just because - and that's saying a lot because the last time I bought a book was sometime in the last century or so it seems.
Still haven't read the book and never will but that is besides the point.
And so it sits on the end table.
I suppose that sooner or later it will find it's way back to the used book store but until then and even after, I just have to say:
"That was one cool dude."
