The Last Day of Silence...
Day 5 ( or 6 depending how you count!): Today’s the last day.
I’m surprisingly emotional about it. I don’t want to leave + at the same time I want to get it over with as quickly as possible.
There are no words (haha) to explain how incredible + life changing this week has been. I’ll spare you the esoteric philosophical meanderings that would probably have you stop reading but I will say this… I don’t think my life will be the same.
I have heard the call and followed it. There’s no going back.
In-between meditations today the woman next to me quietly whispered… “I need the honest truth. Was my gulping just totally distracting and annoying in the last meditation?” I answered that I honestly hadn’t heard them at all.
She then admitted that she was experiencing a ton of excess saliva. I said that, funny enough, I think I was too. We decided that it was a result of the food. She told me she had eaten more sugar + bread in the last week than she had all year.
It’s nice to know I wasn’t alone in that.
