Chop chop

DAY:  Wednesday MORNING MEDITATION:  Nonexistent in the formal sense. (I’m worse than Bridget Jones with her pounds lost/gained and her cigarettes.  TDC:  Today’s Daily Cure is an image that has stuck in my head since I last wrote. It’s winter … Continue reading


Remembering when

DAY:  Tuesday MORNING MEDITATION:  Quick, only ten minutes. But that was an important ten minutes as it is the beginning of starting again. I haven’t meditated in a long, long time, and my mind is both desperately in need and … Continue reading

DAY:  Monday MORNING MEDITATION:  Today’s went well. In fact, I did two. First, my usual 10 minutes of sitting in “silence.” And then, my first walking meditation. I walk all the time so adding a layer of awareness was a beautiful … Continue reading


Let there be space

DAY: Sunday, but I’m a bit behind here…there was all of last week after Monday. Hmm. Where did those days go? MORNING MEDITATION: Today’s was lovely. Calm. Ample. Do you know what I mean by that? As if the mind … Continue reading
