ENTER

Drop by every week to read a real-life story  

When’s the last time you encountered a wild animal in its own habitat? The last time for me was a couple of months ago when I ran into a raccoon in my back yard; at least the raccoon seemed to think I was in its habitat.  But maybe that doesn’t count. Here are a couple of encounters that probably do count.

  1. I remember taking 25 days to camp alone. (In reality I drove home every 4 days or so to pick up food, but most of it was solitude.) The only lesson I learned was that my brain did the same old talking-in-multiple-voices-and-thinking-about-people that it always did, but for days at a stretch instead of minutes. I just extended the time of daydreaming, and most of it involved imagining social interaction. I found days of solitude no more spiritually productive than a few minutes of solitude in my busy life. I guess it requires a kind of focused discipline that mediators cultivate, but I just didn’t have the knack.
