"When my son was two he used to make a circle of his stuffed animals on his bed and lie in the center and say he was “in”. I like meditating in this corner, because this is a swivel chair, and when I face the closed curtain, I feel 'in'.

"I started meditating in 1970. After a couple of years I dropped the practice and picked it up again three years ago, when I began having trouble sleeping at night. It was as if no time had passed. The clarity, peace and internal depth I gained almost 50 years before never left me."
