yoho lake

Emerald Lake 2005 01 – Yoho National Park, British Columbia, Canada, September 2005

See how long you can sit quietly.
No music.
No TV.
No conversation.
No writing.
No reading.
Just you and the silence.
Just you paying attention
to the silence.
Just you watching and listening
to what happens
in the silence.
What do you think?
Where do your thoughts go?
What do you feel?
Where do your feelings come from?
What are you aware of?
What is your level of comfort
with what you are doing?
What causes you to break it off?
How long did you last?
Repeat the experiment
once a day
for a month.
