"Commit to Sit" withNew York Zen Center for Contemplative Care
Ninety days began January 14-Ends April 4th
Daily reminders are sent and read
Daily meditation session wherever I happen to be
Burning a little piece of pine daily through February
gathered from discarded holiday trees
A portion of the 'sacred' shelf behind my computer
I focus on one of the images for five minutes and breathe
Random meditative walks in quiet places
A corner of St. George Church off Stuyvesant Park
knowing when to stop and take care
Today I am Unwell
Doves chortling on a wet window sill.
We three taking refuge from the chill.

The Whole Truth
I do not meditate every day, nor walk in quiet places often enough,
nor do I consistently maintain equanimity,
but I try.
