Light night ear ringing, turning off the brain
Two quick notes: If someone out there was thinking about me at 11:49 and 11:55pm, my ears were ringing like crazy. (I've always wondered about that old saying related to your ears ringing, and people thinking about you. I've often received phone calls immediately after having ear-ringing epidoes.)
The other note is that I've been getting into deep states of relaxation the last few nights by practicing a meditation where I more or less focus on stopping my brain, the activity in my brain. A friend of mine freaks out about this, but if you can imagine having an on/off power switch on your brain, I attempt to flip the switch to "off", and see what happens. So far it has carried over well into the last two mornings, where I've been "more there than here".
