Crescent moon

Nothing says adventure quite like the thin sliver of a crescent moon smiling down from a black night sky. The cheshire cat grin is both reassuring and exhilarating.

Project plateau

I’m not really in the creative flow today. We’re moving house. It’s hot and humid. And I simply can not. I reached a similar plateau in Vipassana way back. After 107 days of consecutive daily practice I missed two sittings which meant I missed out on the mystic 108. In the case of the meditation […]
