Week 156: Omw to Vipassana
Recorded 12.10.2021 I need about two hours to the Vipassana center. Noble silence for 10 days. Self purification and soul. Attention and silence. Awe and wonder. Let us exist. What I feel towards it in a few words? Openness. I was a little ill the last days, and with that comes doubt. But I was always committed. And I’m going.

Writing Session 151: Vernon comes home
Day 7. Lakehouse, couch, sitting upright. Everyday I see the number of the new day in capital letters! (I know numbers aren’t letters) that pass in front of my eyes. A very productive week so far.

Reflection 151: Day 4
07.09.2021 21:23 arguably one of the more important recordings I do. How I’m feeling right now in the midst of this. Am I anything? I don’t want to feel useless. I want to feel solid in what I am. But what’s it when what I am is air? It’s the life and doubt of a writer.

Week 149: Reflections, time with family
I recorded this on the 28th of August coming into midnight. After coming back from Jordan, didn’t leave my dad on the best of terms but he isn’t the easiest person to get along with. He is often unnecessarily difficult and I think he prides himself on that, somehow. I smoked and I spoke about it, even though on the way back I was already done with thinking about it. But hey, it’s life, it’s here and it’s heavy.

Retreat 150: Lakehouse
Treehouse on a lake. In Poland, Poznan. 05.09.2021, feels like a good day. Slept well and ready to take on the day and sit with Vernon. I indexed my writings, organised all I have in one dedicated Scrivener project. I’m eating well, meditated and journaled as soon as I woke up, and now I think I’ll paddle before sitting down with Vernon. I arrived here on Friday the third 03.09.2021, I’m glad I just booked. I’m glad I’m here. Can’t keep waiting to make things happen.

Israa Hospital 148: Dad asleep in hospital
Recorded yesterday, 21.08.2021-22.08.2021 at around 3 am. I was on the couch next to his bed, there was also a chair I sat on, thinking: “Remember this.” He was sleeping, he was breathing.

Thought 146: Dad and his health
08.08.2021 My dad is dying, crashing slowly and uncomfortably, and his hate and malice is branching out. What did he expect? What does he want? And am I wrong not to feel any responsibility towards it? I don’t think I am. Room to reflect.
