He looks like an elf.
My only weakness is, well, never mind

And you'll sleep, but they'll find you

Come back my dream into my arms, into my arms

London is drowning, and I live by the river

Who is Eckhart Tolle?

He wrote A New Earth, a vapid New Age thing that Oprah really liked. Sold a gerjillion copies. Has very vague advice about meditation and 'being in the moment.'

I wasn't aware there was anything to discuss about Eckhart Tolle. ::)

The best episode of Oprah was where you had the Greek Orthodox priest and the Roman Catholic priest yelling at each other about feces.

I rant about him from time to time, largely because the Greek cathedral up the road from me teaches his dross.
