I have had a peak life experience. From the Wikipedia entry:
"Peak experience is a term used to describe certain transpersonal and ecstatic states, particularly ones tinged with themes of unification, harmonization and interconnectedness. Participants characterize these experiences, and the revelations imparted therein, as possessing an ineffably mystical (or overtly religious) quality or essence."
Words can't describe it. But since I'm a talker, I'm sure I'll try. I have a few themes I plan to expound on in the coming days:
- Good casino smell
- The changing nature of food and alcohol in Las Vegas
- Mega casino theme confusion
- Who is this "Elvis", and what does he mean to us?
- The Hoover Dam is really, really big
- "Progress", very often, sucks
In addition, the brave new science of narcozoology might be about to expand. More on that later this week.
Thanks, everyone, for all the nice comments and good wishes. I wish you all could have been there Sunday. It was a blast.
Now, a few pictures.
This is me on stage at the Elvis pep rally Saturday afternoon at the race expo. The media director for the race got me up there with all the Elvettes (female running Elvi). Being one of the only non-jumpsuit Elvi paid off.
