Ji Gong Spotted on Colfax Today

It may be apocryphal, but by way of Alan Watts, I am informed that the Arabs have a saying about crazy people: Be kind to them. Their souls are with God.

I was walking on Colfax with Dr. Phantomizer today and this older guy who was uh, let’s just call him, “well-worn,” started walking with us and telling us jokes.

I was about to tell him that I was sorry, I didn’t really care for riddles, because, well, I don’t, but he seemed harmless so I just smiled and nodded politely.

And then something remarkable happened.

After the string of jokes and riddles he spouted off with impressive fluency, the man said, with an alarmingly honest earnestness, “Keep at it. Apply yourself, and things will work out. Things will turn out alright.”

And then he gave me a hug. And it was exactly what I needed that particularly shitty day.

It was then I remembered hearing about the notably badass monk Ji Gong who reminds me that gurus come in many forms- the crazy, the drunkard, the strung-out hippie, the quiet one, the dancer, the joker.

That’s really all I have to say about that. So, just remember, and I’m saying this because I know how easy it is to forget: Things are going to be okay. Really.

CBS4 Denver: Former Broncos Endorse Cannabis At New Dispensary

“Three former Denver Broncos running backs came together last week to support cannabis as an alternative for health management at the grand opening of a new Denver dispensary.

Reuben Droughns, Tatum Bell, and Lendale White signed autographs last week at the debut of The Joint at 4745 West 38th Avenue.”

You can joke about how times must be tough, or these guys are just really huge stoners with the chillest endorsement deal ever. I did.

On the other hand, at least they’re using their fame to endorse something locally grown, natural, safe, and fun, and not, you know, multinational sweatshop conglomerates.
