Re: Daily Meditation - 10pm EST - 02/03/12 07:28 PM

Lol I left my computer and used Leela on my futon. I did the 8 minute energizing session, then the 10 minute "heart opening" session. It was quite nice. It had me breathing in thoughts for peace about myself, and then breathing out thoughts of peace for someone else. I chose you smile

Quite a lovely meditation session!

Re: Daily Meditation - 10pm EST - 02/03/12 07:32 PM

Oh, thank you! I really appreciate that. I really need to recharge after these last three days. smile

I sat quietly in bed with a back scratch brush and did deep breathing and back scratching. I tried not too think about anything - i just wanted to relax. Breathe in, breathe out...

Re: Daily Meditation - 10pm EST - 02/03/12 09:43 PM

well i could be mistaken but i believe when your meditating your not suppose to be doing back scratching at the same time jilly giggle...bet it felt good tho smile
Posted by: Lisa Shea

Re: Daily Meditation - 10pm EST - 02/03/12 10:51 PM

Meditating can come in a wide variety of styles - for example walking meditation involves moving around, and there is meditation that focuses on sound or on a visual.

So a meditation of a back scratching sounds like one way to draw in focus!

Re: Daily Meditation - 10pm EST - 02/04/12 07:03 PM

It's 10pm on Saturday night - time to enjoy meditation!

Tonight I am going for a 20 minute meditation, letting thoughts that float into my mind float out again like a cloud.

Re: Daily Meditation - 10pm EST - 02/04/12 08:13 PM

well maybe you think back scratching draws focus but i can truly say ive never seen anyone anywhere at anytime advocate it or tell someone to do that while meditating...im certain you cant either giggle crazy lets be a lilllll bit realistic here. smile

Re: Daily Meditation - 10pm EST - 02/04/12 09:30 PM

Ooops, I forgot about tonite. It takes a while to make a habit. smile

Let's stop talking about the back scratching merits. I will relate what I am doing with all honesty, k?

Re: Daily Meditation - 10pm EST - 02/04/12 10:25 PM

Dear Jilly

my comment was meant to by playful jilly, a bit of a chuckle or a smile once in awhile is also very medicinal in finding inner peace with oneself.

i saw no harm on commenting where it is a open discussion...and was drawing upon what i have known in many different types of meditational instructions. smile

also, there is no issue here about honesty being involved...as i was also being honest.

Re: Daily Meditation - 10pm EST - 02/05/12 11:00 AM

Illusive, I am not a newbie to meditating. I am a bit sensitive sometimes though when i feel like someone makes me look foolish. Not your fault; my problem with me.
Posted by: Lisa Shea

Re: Daily Meditation - 10pm EST - 02/05/12 11:01 AM

Jilly -

Just a minor comment because people are finding and reading this thread, and others may want to do meditation involving objects touching their body.

Several of my meditation books do talk about touch being a key sense, and that meditating with touch can be a powerful way to meditate.

One category of suggestions involves your own body. Many suggest resting your hand on your stomach and sensing the natural activity that takes place there. Related to that is the set that has you rest your hand on your heart, for the same reason.

A second set of suggestions involves an inanimate object at rest. So you hold a non-dangerous object and meditate on it. It can be a smooth stone, a multi-facet angled rock, a twisted piece of wood, whatever connects with you at the moment. You explore the dimensions and textures of the object.

A third set of suggestions merges the two and has you interacting that object with your body and examining the sensations that result. So a back scratcher is an ideal form of this.

It's important when we respond to posts that we create an atmosphere that we encourage and welcome their progress. Our hope is to draw new, shy members into sharing their own thoughts.

If we set an expectation that a person will be told "you are doing it wrong", then that discourages why people from posting.

We want to strive to create an atmosphere where people feel they will be encouraged and supported, however they are choosing to begin.

Sorry for the delay, with the classwork I'm running a little late tonight.

It's 10:20pm and I'm ready to meditate! I desperately need it after today's stress smile Thank goodness I got all the papers in before that deadline. The teachers take a full grade letter off for papers that are submitted late.

OK. Long breaths. Bob is playing Skyrim so I think I will go meditate upstairs where there are no sounds of screaming monsters smile

Re: Daily Meditation - 10pm EST - 02/05/12 09:04 PM

I did about a half hour of meditation, that was just what I needed. I did a candle meditation in my room. I lit a candle and focused on it. It flickered a lot on the beginning and I thought about getting another candle. But then I thought that this was part of the lesson, to deal with things that might normally seem annoying, and to learn to accept the way they are. So I began to think of the flickering candle as a twinkling star, and I was able to relax with it. And the candle settled down, and it was lovely smile

Re: Daily Meditation - 10pm EST - 02/05/12 10:17 PM

that is quite nice! I like that!

I was sitting around a fire this evening and missed the meditation time. Staring at a fire is nice, though, and has it's own meditative qualities.
Posted by: Lisa Shea

Re: Daily Meditation - 10pm EST - 02/06/12 01:48 AM

Yes definitely staring at a flame is a classic form of meditation. Well done!

10pm on Monday! Time for relaxing meditation! I think I may do sound meditation tonight. I want to try a variety over the days.

obviously what your doing must be more important and has your attention for that reason at that time because its something your suppose to be doing...even if its nothing...sometimes nothing is a profound thing ... smile

Re: Daily Meditation - 10pm EST - 02/08/12 02:00 PM

I try to meditate every night when I'm soaking in a bubble bath...sorry Jilly...no reading, no music, just me and the bubbles. But then I start to think, with nothing else to do with my brain, then pretty soon I'm either stressing out or upset about something. I suck at meditation. frown
Posted by: illusive Fantasy

Re: Daily Meditation - 10pm EST - 02/08/12 02:28 PM

you dont really suck at meditation...as soon as your mind starts to drift...thats when you need to redirect back to ...how that bubble bath feels ..and your pampering yourself...take a facecloth at that moment or just cup your hand and drizzle the water over yourself and watch the droplets ..be aware of how it feels an looks...swish the water...maybe add a bit more warm water...and listen to it fill the tub more...have some music on...close your eyes feel the steaminess things like that... laugh
Posted by: Lisa Shea

Re: Daily Meditation - 10pm EST - 02/08/12 07:03 PM

Dear Kathy -

Illusive is exactly right. Meditation is the *practice* of learning to tune your mind. You can't suck at it. You are just at a different stage of practicing which is fine. Every human gets distracted thoughts, and the practice of meditation helps us to learn how to let those drift away again.

There will always be times that we get sucked into our thoughts, and that's normal! When we realize we have been, then we smile gently at ourselves, praise ourselves for realizing it, and refocus on our breath and the bubbles.

One step at a time!

Dear Jilly -

I have a timer on my PC that goes off every hour. It's the only way I'm aware of time passing. Without the timer I'd never remember that I want to set aside time for meditation. Maybe your phone or PC can have a timer on it?
Posted by: Lisa Shea

Re: Daily Meditation - 10pm EST - 02/08/12 07:05 PM

OK it is 10pm on Tuesday. Time for a meditation.

Maybe tonight I will do a moving meditation - walking heel to toe around the house. I wish I had snow - last year I made a labyrinth spiral in the snow and adored it. I was really looking forward to doing it again this year, but no snow!! It's unfair, winter is supposed to be about beautiful snow.

But I need to remember that nature is varied and that is fine smile With this year's lack of snow I will appreciate next year's snow even more than usual. So I will make an indoor labyrinth.

Re: Daily Meditation - 10pm EST - 02/08/12 08:30 PM

dear Lisa...i remember last year all too well with the snow...forgive me for saying...glad you cant do that giggle...this is nice toooo...instead go out and do a visual as if there were snow...sigh... smile
Posted by: jilly

Re: Daily Meditation - 10pm EST - 02/08/12 10:05 PM

I've never ever thought of snow as having an upside. LOL. But the labyrinth idea is a cool thought.
Posted by: Lisa Shea

Re: Daily Meditation - 10pm EST - 02/10/12 07:03 PM

I *adore* snow. You can ski! You can sled! It looks absolutely gorgeous. Snow snow snow. I think we're getting some tomorrow! Hurrah!!

I wouldn't live in New England if I didn't adore snow smile It's why I'm here!

OK, on to meditation. Hmmmm, what kind of meditation to explore tonight. Taste! I've done sight, sound, texture, touch, movement. Now taste. I will meditate with a glass of wine next to me, and explore all aspects of its taste.
Posted by: illusive Fantasy

Re: Daily Meditation - 10pm EST - 02/10/12 08:01 PM

there are many places that have snow...you dont have to live in new england to have it ...and thank goodness ...it wont be much snow at all...an poof it will be gone in a blink...yipeee smile

okay, that was lovely. It got a little harder to hold the pose at the end, but i did keep reminding myself to relax into it, and listen to the rain sounds.

Sorry sorry I'm here - Bob was having challenges with the holopchi cooking process so I had to call my mom on the phone (we're Ukrainian) and get the low-down on how this is supposed to work. So now the cabbage is cored and I'm back to my desk.

I'm ready to meditate! I'll go with Jilly's idea and do yoga moving meditation tonight.

Re: Daily Meditation - 10pm EST - 02/14/12 09:58 AM

i love Golompkies...what you call...holopchi...i make them often during the winter and have a recipe from a very old full polish woman...some call them pigs in the blanket or just plain old cabbage rolls...such a comfort food i think...and they sound like a lot of work but i find prepartion to go quite smoothly and quickly enough... laugh

the real challenge is to find in some store cabbage large enough so when you need to cut away the vein you still have a large enough leaf to roll the contents in. I however, dont use saurkraut or ham ...therein lies the cultural differences in recipes.
Posted by: Lisa Shea

Re: Daily Meditation - 10pm EST - 02/14/12 07:06 PM

I'll post the recipe when we are through with that set of testing!

It's meditation time on Valentine's Day - a perfect day to have a loving-kindness meditation!

OK it's nearly 10pm on Wednesday, I am being prepared this time. I have my Wii turned on and Leela all powered up. I've got it ready to do a 12 minute guided meditation.

I'll send a link to this thread out to my Twitter and Facebook page - hopefully we'll get some people to relax with us tonight!
Posted by: Lisa Shea

Re: Daily Meditation - 10pm EST - 02/15/12 07:01 PM

Okey dokey! Exactly 10pm! And Leela is live and waiting! Hurrah smile

I will go with my lovely ginger twist tea and do the 12 minute guided meditation, and then whatever one unlocks after that which may be a 15 minute one.

Chime in if you're meditating too!

Re: Daily Meditation - 10pm EST - 02/15/12 07:31 PM

That's great Jilly! I did the 12 minute meditation and then a 14 minute meditation after that. I've now unlocked a 17 minute meditation, the final one. I need to get my logic schoolwork in before midnight, but I think once I do that that I'll go back and do the 17 minute one, they were really restful.
Posted by: Lisa Shea

Re: Daily Meditation - 10pm EST - 02/16/12 07:01 PM

OK it's 10pm on Thursday! I have Leela up and ready to go. I did do the 17 minute meditation yesterday - today I think I'll go through a section of each meditation, to better document what each is about. Each one uses a different focus, to help users learn about a variety of techniques. I'll post the summary when I'm done!

10pm on Friday night! I got caught up in my schoolwork and somehow missed my chiming alert. OK I'm ready! It'll be good to take a break, I'm in finals week so I have two final papers due on Sunday. Lots of stuff to do.

OK, meditation. Bob has taken over the TV so no Leela. Hmmm. I think I will do a walking meditation, heel to toe, that can be a nice break from sitting.
Posted by: Lisa Shea

Re: Daily Meditation - 10pm EST - 02/20/12 06:56 PM

I missed Sat and Sun for various reasons, but here we are on Monday and I definitely need it! I'm helping a friend of mine proof his book for publication. I did a full sweep of his book and fixed NUMEROUS typos in it. Now he just gave me a fresh version and all my typo fixes are gone! He accidentally did his polishing work on an old version of the document. So I had to run a "document compare" between the two and am manually redoing my typo fixes. Again. It's frustrating to do the same work twice. At least this time I don't have to find them again, just make the fixes indicated by the Word compare.

How shall I meditate tonight. When I tried my walking meditation, I kept getting distracted by the clutter everywhere. So that wasn't ideal. Maybe a feet-up-the-wall quiet one tonight.
Posted by: Lisa Shea

Re: Daily Meditation - 10pm EST - 02/22/12 07:05 PM

Tuesday I was sound asleep, my sleep schedule is getting unusual even for me smile Today I'm here! I had a lovely dinner with my mom, then an hour of PS3 dancing, and now it's a great time for a mental break!

Maybe a breath meditation tonight, that is always a good one to work on.
Posted by: jilly

Re: Daily Meditation - 10pm EST - 02/23/12 06:33 PM

ok it's a half hour til meditation time. I am going to do a quiet sitting with lots of soft blankets around me for ten minutes, when the time comes.
Posted by: Lisa Shea

Re: Daily Meditation - 10pm EST - 02/23/12 07:01 PM

That sounds awesome Jilly! Soft blankets bring a great texture into your meditation.

Bob is off shopping so I actually have a silent house. I think I will do a sitting breath meditation again. That is very restful for me.

I woke up at 6pm today and pretty much all I have been doing for the past 4 hours is sorting my email. I really need to get this under control, there is SO much mail deluging me that I am falling further behind. So a focus break would help me a lot.
Posted by: jilly

Re: Daily Meditation - 10pm EST - 02/23/12 07:18 PM

OKay, I was distracted by my reading. Will start meditation now!
Posted by: Lisa Shea

Re: Daily Meditation - 10pm EST - 02/25/12 07:05 PM

Yesterday I was caught up in dancing and went right past meditation time. I guess I was doing a dancing meditation! It's good for my health at least smile

Today I am busy reloading my first four medieval novels up. I had found a few minor typos in each one once they went live, and I waited until now in case more were reported. But it seems that's all there was. So they all get shiny new versions for going forward.

I have three done, and will take a meditation break! I think a sitting meditation will do nicely.
Posted by: jilly

I will do tonite's meditation now. Sitting down with a smooth stone. This always attracts the cats - me sitting still!

Re: Daily Meditation - 10pm EST - 03/14/12 07:06 PM

I'm so sorry I've been away. Things have been absolutely hectic in my life. I am finally feeling like I can breathe again. My mom keeps asking me to visit to see a show or something, and I can't even imagine doing it. Every second is already backlogged; I can't possibly take 5 hours to just sit and watch entertainment.

I need to get my life back under control. This is just too much, with the school and work and books and everything else.

OK, I really need to be able to *breathe*.

Meditation today. Sit on the couch. Close my eyes. Even ten minutes would be a blessing right now.

Posted by: Lisa Shea

Re: Daily Meditation - 10pm EST - 09/22/12 05:41 PM

I completely fell out of practice on my meditation. And I do miss it immensely. I need to work it back into my schedule. I am making good progress on the house decluttering project so I think that will help a lot. I would love to have a much less filled house.

I will set my alarm to do a meditation tonight at 10pm - so in an hour and 20 minutes. I'd love to have people join me!
Posted by: Lisa Shea

Re: Daily Meditation - 10pm EST - 09/22/12 07:03 PM

OK I am here! It is 10pm! I will strive to do a 5 minute meditation. I think I need to start in a small dose - it's been a very long day full of lots of coding, and it's not done yet. Still, progress is being made.

So here I go, turning down the lights and breathing deeply. Come join me!

Re: Daily Meditation - 10pm EST - 09/27/12 07:06 PM

OK my hard drive melted down early this week and I'm barely getting it back running again. One of the replacement hard drives we brought home didn't work either. So it's been a long, stressful week.

I can definitely use some moments of quiet here, to relax and regroup!

I will aim for five minutes tonight. My computer is busy doing windows updates anyway smile

LOL what's funny is I have an alert on my computer, and lately I get annoyed that the alert disrupts something I'm doing! It goes to show how much I really need the meditation, to regain some balance in my life.

I'll do my best to meditate tonight smile.

Re: Daily Meditation - 10pm EST - 12/13/12 08:03 PM

I have been bad about this. When the timer goes off it interrupts me and I ignore it. Clearly I need to work on this.

I wanted to do ten full minutes. I just can't take that long of a break right in the middle of my day.

I'm now going to aim for ONE minute smile. That won't slow down my coding too much if I'm deep into coding. Hopefully that can get me back on track.

Re: Daily Meditation - 10pm EST - 04/19/13 02:00 PM

(no posts between 12/27/12 and 4/19/13) It is amazing how even the simplest things slip away when one doesn't pay attention to them. I do try to meditate every night when I lay in bed, and I suppose that does count. But I would like something a little more deliberate, vs using the time I can't fall asleep for something useful. I will strive to get back into this practice, starting tonight! One day at a time!

That was lovely! During much of it I could feel the mess around me "pressing in" on me. It just seemed so powerful. I think that's an important sign for me that I have to clean up this office. I don't think I realize how much the mess affects me until I sit down and just sit in it like that.

Re: Daily Meditation - 10pm EST - 04/19/13 02:00 PM

We are about fifteen minutes away from our evening meditation! Get something to drink, settle down, and join me in a peaceful meditation! It's OK if you have random thoughts during this. That's what meditation is all about. It's about dealing with those thoughts. Think of it like weightlifting. It wouldn't really be weightlifting without weights giving resistance to you. Those thoughts are the resistance and you're practicing dealing with them.

That was quite lovely! And I opened my eyes exactly after ten minutes, without a timer or anything. My boyfriend was watching the news so I played a Windham Hill song set to overlay it, and that was quite peaceful.

Re: Daily Meditation - 10pm EST - 04/20/13 02:00 PM

I ended up doing fifteen minutes - it was lovely! A bit cluttered thoughts at first, but definitely cleaning up my office has helped a lot. I feel much more serene in here. And over time the thoughts faded away. I focused on my breath this time, counting each out-breath up to 10 and then restarting. Then I ended with a visualization of my Tibetan temple with hyacinths and birds singing.

A lovely ten minute meditation, meditated to three songs by Enya. Have to take May It Be out though - it fills me with poignancy. It's the song from the first Lord of the Rings and I think I connect with that series too strongly to use it as a meditation song smile.

A lovely walking meditation session. I find I am able to slow down and release tension more when I'm walking vs sitting. On the down side, my house is quite messy so walking around it tends to distract me and make me discouraged. So I should walk around outside next time, if it's not raining.

Wow, ok, so I spent five hours recovering as many posts as possible. I think I missed a few, but most of the thread is intact again. Hopefully I don't do that again! smile.

Ah, much better than the saltwater track. This one stayed just with one "shot" the whole way through, without switching every two minutes. Plus, it had a gentle current.

Re: Daily Meditation - 10pm EST - 10/25/13 05:22 AM

I'm just back from a week's cruise to Bermuda. I made a renewed focus to do yoga for an hour every day, and to meditate at the end of that session. The fitness area had an enclosed room just for spinning, with a hard wood floor and a bank of windows along the moonrise side. So each night I went there at 10pm and did an hour long session from 10-11pm, which ended when the fitness center closed. It was quiet, peaceful, and lovely.



I did find by the end of the week that I was noticeably more flexible, so it was a great restart to both practices smile.

The small white sphere in the top right of the window is the moon.

Heading into my 10pm meditation. Today was a blur. With Julie's frequent pill schedule, I am barely sleeping but barely awake smile. Tomorrow Juliet finishes with her kitty-morphine and then things should calm down a bit, once it's just twice-a-day antibiotics on an even schedule. So I'll meditate on her healing well.

Re: Daily Meditation - 10pm EST - 06/03/14 03:35 PM

I'm still listening my way through the CD that came with my Iyanla Vanzant's Forgiveness book. I liked the book a lot - the CD, not so much. There's an odd difference in two of the audio forgiveness meditations. The "Mother" track was about releasing negative feelings - a good aim. Today's "Father" track was more along the lines of, "it doesn't matter if he was a jerk and never around. God was there doing his job. So don't worry about your actual Dad. Just believe in God instead." I found that really strange. Surely we should want to forgive both parents equally?

Heading into 10pm meditation - finishing up polishing on my dystopian novella. Yes, another genre. I've always wanted to write this story. In the past when I had a scifi story demanding to be told I tried turning it into a medieval novel to stay with that existing genre series. It didn't work - my brain still wanted me to write the scifi version. So now I just let the stories out the way they want to be and don't worry about what genre the story is in.

Heading into 10pm meditation time. Finalizing the first novella in my new 1800s series set in rural Tennessee with a black / Indian female main character. Based on an ancestor of mine. It's coming out fairly rough, given what I know of her life. Trying to decide if I should tone it down to keep it "clean" or to just alert people in the description that it's a bit rougher than what I usually write. I want to be authentic to what she went through.

Re: Daily Meditation - 10pm EST - 09/17/16 03:47 PM

Evening meditation time. Today I spent a lovely day at an art festival. On one hand I could have been disappointed. I raced to get there early (for me) by 10am to get my & Bob's photos submitted; it turns out they had to be in by 9am. So that was disappointing. But a minor hurdle and at least we got to be hung and seen with the rest. And on the great up-side, my good friend Bob E won both first AND second prize for his photography!! And not only that, but I'm the "ghost" in that 1st place image - we did that at Shaw Farm as a long-exposure project. #namaste

I hope they figure out what's wrong with her. #Namaste

Evening meditation time. JulieTheCat is feeling much better! I had intended to do my taxes on the back porch while she slept, but instead she wanted me to take her for an hour-plus 'wander' in the yard - she loved it! She was sad when we had to go in. I'm so grateful she's feeling better. #Namaste

Evening meditation time. I got a lot done today. I picked up art from one show for me and 2 other people, delivered it to another show, and stopped by a third shop to reorganize the art I had hanging there. Then I got home and did a bunch of much-needed cleaning. I finalized four different authors' books for them and then created a compilation book for my writing group. I got a bunch of excess stuff listed on ebay/craigslist/etc. I even paused to treasure time with JulieCat who managed to wriggle out into the afternoon when I was taking some of those ebay photos. Every moment has its meaning and is worthy of treasuring. #Namaste

Evening meditation time. Racism and violence are all around us. It's part of why I donate so much of my book profits to support women's shelters. Tonight I'm meditating on whether these scenes should be in my "entertainment". I know racism and violence exist. I invest my own time and money to help break the cycle. Next, I do feel it's important in general to watch award-winning movies to stay in tune with cultural references. Still, if something upsets me, surely there's a balance. I don't need to watch a movie to know racism and violence happen. I know already. And if the other option is to reduce my empathy level, I'm not sure I like that either ... #Namaste

Evening meditation time. I'm nearly done with book 1 in my fairy-tale Cinderella series. I've been rewriting this one for nearly two years now and am finally at a point where I'm reasonably happy with it. Originally I was following along the traditional story-line, but I just couldn't embrace it. My heroine had to become more feisty - to not just wait passively for her prince to save her. #Namaste

BTW this castle is in Germany - my Mom and I visited it on a wonderful trip there. It's not my photo, though, this is a stock image I have rights to smile.

Evening meditation time. I've just sent my new Cinderella book 1 out to my beta-readers. If you're interested in seeing a copy, let me know. It took me quite a while (nearly two years) to craft a personality for Cinderella that I liked. I just wasn't keen on her traditional passive way of being. I'm open to polishing ideas on the cover and especially on the subtitle and series name. Those are definitely works in progress smile. #Namaste

Treasure each opportunity. #Namaste

It's been a multi-day effort but definitely worth it, to have my best possible voice out there.

Take steps to improve daily! #namaste

Re: Daily Meditation - 10pm EST - 04/08/17 04:14 PM

Evening meditation time. I'm still in shock that another "Lisa Shea" author just released her Cinderella book weeks before my own. The exact same author name. The exact same fairy tale princess. The exact same 30 day period. I have over 300 books out, so I'm not hard to find to see I've been working on this area. I've been discussing my book for probably over a year.

I have now published mine, even though I wasn't quite ready to, and will publish book 2 (Snow White) shortly.

A key reason this upsets me is that I worked on my Cinderella series for all this time so it would *counteract* the fairy tale message girls are given. And now there's a book out which looks to all my readers as if I *did* write a fairy tale version. There's no way for a reader to look at that book and know it is NOT me. And on Amazon if you click on the "Lisa Shea" name it shows my other books.

Just very upsetting. Time for deep breathing and inward focus. #namaste

Re: Daily Meditation - 10pm EST - 04/09/17 03:37 PM

Evening meditation time. What a wild day. I began with near-zero sleep due to an out-of-the-blue ramped-up publishing requirement. I raced to an art/author festival and barely got there on time. While I was unpacking the car, I "lost" my car keys (put them on the car roof) and it took me an HOUR of searching before someone helpfully pointed them out to me smile. And I ended up fiercely sunburned. Still, I met tons of cool people at the festival, sold some origami earrings, sold some books, got tons of compliments on my art (and on Bob's) and am overall content with the result. I'll just live the next few days swathed in aloe smile. #namaste

Evening meditation time. Every day I strive to challenge myself & think outside the box. It helps the brain stay engaged. For example, when people used to ask what I wrote, I would say "anything but horror". And then I thought to myself, why define myself by a negative?

In Japan, if a princess doesn't marry a "proper mate" they're kicked out of the family. It's time for us to let these families simply be people. To choose what they do and who they love. I am very happy I was born a "commoner" without those restrictions. #namaste

One of the attendees (who attended my previous two sessions too, on writing and publishing) gave me this lovely scarf in thanks!! I then spent the day writing. Now I'm making hearts out of my old-version medieval romance book pages - books I would no longer sell / give away because I've changed the storyline since then. I'm loving the hearts!! smile. They'll make great table decor for my upcoming book club meeting! #Namaste

Evening meditation time. Self-driving trucks are now driving (with supervision) from Texas to Florida without any issues. We need to prepare for this massive loss of jobs. Even if they keep humans in the cabs for a few years, just the enormous drop in accidents will have a ripple effect to impact all the jobs currently kept busy by those accidents. Large trucks are involved in about 500,000 a year. Most accidents are currently caused by absent-minded drivers.
