Waiting For Odysseus

Waiting For Odysseus

Odysseus was the geek of his times. The really big warriors were the amoks, like Ajax and Achilles, who literally were possessed by the gods and spirits when in the frenzy of battle.

Odysseus was a warrior, but he was also a clever person... as Zorba said, like a "grocer" who "weighs everything." 
You never saw anyone meticulously weigh things in a tender balance while they were in a blood-lust frenzy.

I am at a complete loss as to what to say. Perhaps, if I come here regularly, I will understand.

However, I have been told, and it has been demonstrated many times by others that a regular schedule of exposing oneself to this blog has dire consequences.

Caveat lector... let the reader beware.
