The Sounds of Silence


This is it. I leave tomorrow morning very early to begin my Vipassana 10-day silent meditation. Wish me luck, I will either go mad or discover an astounding calm at the center of my being. Or both.

The blog will of course be silent as well for the next 10 days, so you can all spend your time perusing the many photos in my album, or reviewing past blog entries. There will be a quiz upon my return.

    Shhhhhhhhhhhhh, your lips are sealed. Good luck and I’ll be thinking of you. Remember: Pet Shop Boys lyrics count as “idle” thoughts, so focus my friend, focus!

    Remember, you ARE allowed to have idle thoughts. It’s about the process of returning each time to stillness after the idle thought.

    You can do it honey! Well, I know you can do the meditation. Still not sure how you’ll swing that silence vow…

    Have a great time. I can’t wait to hear about it when you get out….
