quit mousing around

I had no heat for several days. It was obnoxious and I had to leave my apartment.

I felt like I was living out of a suitcase. I guess I was.

What if you literally could live out of a suitcase?

Imagine eating breakfast in your suitcase. Brushing your teeth in your suitcase. Sleeping in your suitcase.

If you were a mouse, you could do that.

It makes me think of The Witches by Roald Dahl (one of my favorite books as a kid).

If you’re not familiar with it, I won’t spoil it. But, there are humans who get turned into mice (yes, by witches).

Life as a mouse would be different, that’s for sure.

Meditation is awesome.

“Michael, what does meditation have to do with this???”

Well, if you’re a meditator, you’re capable of imagining what it’s like not to be human.

“But, I don’t meditate and I can still imagine what it’s like not to be human…”

That’s what you think.

“I don’t get it.”

Not everything has to be gotten. Sometimes it’s enough just to leave it right where it is.

“So, what are you trying to say?”


“This is too frustrating for me.”

Great! You seem to be getting in touch with something important.



P.S. That’s why meditation classes have been canceled this week. They will resume shortly.
