Yesterday mom meditated for most of the day, 30 minute sitting periods alternated with walking meditation and meal breaks. I swear, the first time she began that weird walking meditation thing, where she did circuits around the house v-e-r-y s-l-o-w-l-y, she scared the bejesus out of me. I looked at her like she was out of her mind. I actually thought she was a zombie!
By suppertime everything was back to normal, mom had returned to her normally-chatty, lovable self. Whew!
