Harvey Keitel: "I Sit ... On Fire"

Harvey Keitel is one plenty intense motherfucker, let me tell you. (The Corsair down a martini) He looks like he possesses an abundance of "the rib busting ox-strength." The Corsair wouldn't want to rub shoulders with him. *The Corsair shudders* Lorraine Bracco, BTW, dated both Keitel and Edward James Olmos? (Then played the infatuation and psychiatrist of a brutal mob boss and a Goodfella's wife) Who likes the dark energy?
Maybe the following will explain why Harvey Keitel wears such an "I'll-eat-your-face" expression so firmly affixed to his puss all the time. Like Harvey's about ready to backhand someone. It's uncanny. According to The Independent:
"Keitel has served his time in therapy and says that it was beneficial, but now his self-exploration has moved on to another plane. 'I'm beginning to have a better time because I'm learning the discipline of Sitting, with a capital S. It has brought me into a relationship with the self that I've been seeking. It's fierce, this place, by the way.
"'A friend asked me once, Harvey, are you a Buddhist?. I said, I Sit. He said, You Sit? in a sarcastic tone. If you meditate, aren't you supposed to be at peace with yourself? If you Sit, why are you so intense all the time? I replied once again, I Sit... on fire. You know, I'm very excited about Sitting,'" he adds."
WTF?! (The Corsair "bolts")
