Back to Basics

Park benches are almost as good as massage chairs

Stress.   It comes from all over the place.  For me it’s been building since I started writing Ghilan earlier this year.  Writing a novel in 90 days can kill you.  Add to that the stress of caring for an elderly parent and increased stress at work, including travel, and you get DEF-CON 1.

Normally I spend a lot of time in contemplation, meditation, and prayer, but since the book launch I’ve been spending mornings and lunch breaks trying to promote the book.

About a week ago I realized that I need to get back to basics: meditating or contemplating daily and spending Sundays doing as little as possible.

I feel better already.
