Welcome to the HOW NOT TO school of gaining wisdom -- a subject in which I have acquired some measure of expertise.
Many of these cartoons are autobiographical. I actually live with Siam The Mouse and Dharma The Cat. This coolest of cats teaches me how to be fully absorbed in the now, while Siam the cheese-chaser reminds me that one's spiritual development is always balanced by call of the mundane.
So, in these cartoons I am represented by Bodhi, the novice monk who stumbles so earnestly along the Buddha's noble path, while his wise cat Dharma observes from a cool place and offers commentary on my "progress." Meanwhile, Siam continually chases the cheese, and is forever laughing over her shoulder at both of us.From the Inside Flap:
Dharma The Cat is a very cool cat. From a higher plane he wisely observes his earnest young master, Bodhi, stumbling along the path to spiritual enlightenment, while Siam, a single-minded mouse, doesn't care for anything but the cheese.
