Solitude & Random snaps

This morning I got up and decided to make an attempt at experiencing solitude. My good friend Ron sent me this exercise where you sit upright, erect, eyes open, looking straight in front of you for one full hour. Most people have never done such a thing. I never had. Obviously a form of meditation but most people never, ever sit in a quiet place, in one position, without interruption or distraction for a solid hour. So, I did it. I squirmed like an impatient little kid for the first 20 minutes and then finally fell into a peaceful groove. Before I knew it my alarm went off and my hour was up. A very interesting exercise. I suggest you try it. It's harder than you think.
