I sometimes wear a winged squid around my neck. Here's something by its creator, Da'oud Thompson of Santa Barbara, CA. He sells these and can be reached at daoud@west.net or http://quantumweb.com/daoud/.

Transcendent Calamari

The soup and muck of experience is fraught with slippery situations which serve on one level to teach the lesson of pain and inconvenience, but for those who wish to rise above this, let's take the example of the mythological Winged Squid to rise above it all. That mad Sushi Chef that approacheth with knife in hand needs the cosmic banana peel skillfully placed underfoot so that we might flee to pursue our more urgent concerns of denial and escapism. This should release us from having to learn from pain, to the way god intended it, from soaps and tv sitcoms.
