Tomorrow morning my lovely girlfriend Iris leaves for ten days of meditation in the Blue Mountains. She’ll have ten days without speaking, without the phone, TV, and worst of all – INTERNET! Just meditation, all day.

I figure this could either be very very good, or very very bad. You might end up in triumphant a voyage of discovery, gaining inner peace and tranquillity… or you could be just completely bored out of your skull. I can certainly see the benefits of silence. I’m just not sure I could stand ten days worth.
