Time Coast name change

Okay, okay was figuring econcon is a pretty obscure reference for most.
You'd have to have seen Seven Days in May , and still its buried within the movie; so at any rate I have renamed the blog : Along the Time Coast.
This of course is lifted from Spirit's Spirit of 76 album and Future Games. Jack Bond.
Yes , well.
The time coast implies being on the shore of time; on the edge of Time as it were.
To paraphase Lama Govinda, here we are in the present which is constantly nibbling away at the future, digesting it in the present moment and converting it into the past.
Thus yesterday, is already past, though it doesn't feel so long ago.
Therefore, and henceforth if you live along the Time coast, no telling what will wash up on your shore.
As I mentioned to MrChileMan, it might be a pearl of great price, a nugget of wisdom , or you might stumble into With 6 you get Eggroll. As Bill Griffth told Zippy the Pinhead once, when he spotted Marilyn in the Nash convertible, no Zippy, no, don't follow that, that way lies.......

Okay, in a different vein here is one of my favorite lines from The Precious treasury of The Basic Space of Phenomena by Longchen Rabjam: pg. 9.:

Labeling takes place in confusion, for what is nonexistent is
taken to exist.
Given that the nature of things is similar to that of dream images,
which have no basis
how exceedingly strange it is to fixate on samsara or nirvana
as though they existed in their own right!

Everything is wholly positive, a supreme state of spontaneous presence.
Since there has never been confusion, is no confusion, and never will
be confusion,
conditioned existence is merely a label.
