I'm a tired writer who thrives on Nature, Spirit and Laughter. As Jim Morrison said in one of the songs he did with THE DOORS, I'm attempting to "BREAK ON THROUGH TO THE OTHER SIDE". I love my crazy cats (I call them Cathuahuas, since they were raised by a Chihauhau, and NOT a cat.) and I love the wind. I keep two blogs at blogger.com, one called, PRACTICE MEDITATION JOURNAL and the other TRACKING THOREAU. I've also been posting poetry at WordPress.com. More

Why do you practice?
I WANT TO BREAK ON THROUGH TO THE OTHER SIDE!  
What do you practice?
I think you would call me offbeat in my meditation style, i.e., I can't say I do any official "style".  When I walk, I am in a meditative state.  I connect with Nature.  I also listen to music [and do automatic writing].  I pay attention to my breathing.  ETC!  The only way I walk to exercise, is I make sure I do it for a certain amount of time.  Other than that - call it mindful walking!  I "sit" when I listen to music.  

Sat on 23 days this month, totalling 4 hours 47 minutes practice. (23 entries total)
