As the world turns,
So are these the days of our lives,
For all my children.
I regret I have only one life to live,
As I head toward the guiding light.

Ah, we're all hurtling towards death. Something to look forward to ...

Thanks, Mr Pirsig. You did good stuff.

In about 1973 on my first cross country motorcycle trip I rode I Honda 500/4. I met a guy in Kansas, who was traveling from somewhere east to his new future home in Colorado. He was on a Triumph 500 with a right hand shifter. He had the book and we read to each other from it on our several nights camping together.

I also co-authored a paper on electric market design in the late 90s called Zen and the Art of Market Design. I think mostly I contributed the title. It actually became the biases for the first wholesale market design in Texas.
