83. Wreck of the old treble 6. (6th April ’15).

Just over a week ago I was eyes closed in a meditation session in the latter stages of a 10 day retreat. Funny the stuff that bubbles up when the concentration refuses to stay put. When it becomes like trying to put the steam off your coffee back in the mug. This came up during that hour almost fully formed. I found myself concentrating after all.

About Jim Laing

Here are things mostly lyrical and poetic, with nonsense sometimes, reviews and personal musings. The coffees hot and always black. The words not necessarily so.
