China goes loopy for placing a stick on your head
TREE huggers, step aside. The new way to show your coolness with all things natural is to wear a stick on your head. It’s reported that in Xi’an, Shaanxi province, western China, those in search of enlightenment are meditating with stick on their heads.
One enthusiast who teaches the art of stick wearing is quoted:
“It sounds odd but it really does relax you. If you have one real task to concentrate on, all your worries and stresses seem to melt away, and you don’t notice the heat at all. We follow the same principles as zen meditation to keep the body and the mind in harmony.”
Sticks, of course, open up the meridians to the brain.
News reaches us that Old Mr Anorak’s daughter Profuma Wiggins Farah Savile-Anorak has formed a small ‘hair hole’ in the top of her Trustafarian plaits and planted an apple seed in it. With the right combination of water, aloe and spirituality, she hopes a tree will grow from her head, and should Gaia see fit, bear fruit to feed the wildlife living in her armpits and ears.
No-one said being at one with Nature would be easy…
