Buddhists Can’t Be Choosers

Reincarnation is like a box of chocolates – if you don’t get in there fast, someone else gets all the good stuff.

I came to Buddhism pretty late in my last life. I guess you could’ve described me as an Experimental Agnostic in my former incarnation, because it was my predilection to give pretty much all the religions a test run before I made my ultimate decision. In the end (and at my end) I chose Buddhism, because it seemed to be the most flexible in terms of afterlife, and I liked to leave my options open.

Some people say I got my just deserts when I was reincarnated as an Atheist… but I don’t believe for a second that that’s true.

I love words; both reading and writing them. I've started this site in order to have a depository for all the random ramblings which are continually swirling around my mind. Some of the aforementioned ramblings may be quite serious but the majority probably won't be. I'm a single mother living in Norwich. I'm also autistic. This isn't the defining component of my personality, although it is a significant one, and one which I think has a heavy influence on my writing, which is why I choose to highlight it. I also feel no shame over being autistic and refuse to perceive it as a disability. The way I see it, life is hard work whichever way your brain is wired up. Aside from all things wordy, I also love music. I find it to be an incredible mood enhancer, as well as a great enabler for the imagination. I love all kinds of music, though hard house in particular - as everything in life is better when it's hard... I hope you enjoy my musings and thank you for reading!
