I don’t feel like going to meditation class today. Mostly because I’m now done with work but still have 1.5 hours til class begins, which leaves limited options, the most obvious being a visit to the gym. Which I’m feeling too lazy to do, but I feel lazy because I’ve been sitting all day, so it’s really the perfect thing to do before I go sit for another 2 hours.
I just learned of this: the Gypsy Flower (Cynoglossum officinale)! And it grows right here in Minne. Here’s a photo:
Ooh, so pretty! Unfortunately, it appears to be known by another common name, Hound’s Tongue. Probably in another country, though. Not here. It’s definitely called Gypsy Flower here.
Here’s a photo of Robert Plant eating ice cream:
And, with that total randomness, I feel well prepared to barter with the monkey mind in seated meditation tonight.
