"Illusionist and endurance artist David Blaine
stepped out onto a 20ft pillar at Pier 54 on New York City's
west side on Friday night to stand amidst a million volts of electric current for three days and three nights."
When pleasure no longer buries the pain
And worry does not pay the bills,
When depression ceases to shield the rage
And anger does not repair the rift,
When hope no longer blunts the fear
And sadness does not bring the dead back to life,
When all feelings have finally quenched
And frustration has yielded to peace,
Happiness is the last recourse.

-H.H.the Dalai Lama-
