If I wasn't in school right now, I'd probably be getting married next month.
I got my smile from the sunshine,
I got my tears from the rain.
I learned to dance when I saw a tiger prance,
And a peacock taught me to be vain.
A little owl in a tree so high,
He taught me how to wink my eye.
I learned to bill and coo from a turtledove,
And a grizzly bear taught me how to hug.
But the guy that lived two caves from me,
He taught me how to love.
I take 30 minute showers and three hour hot baths and I stand in front of the hot air blowing from the heater for 10 minutes at a time.
The truth is I couldn't meditate in a cold shower, in fact my dream of pure happiness is a three hour bath.
Three hours in a hot bath gives me time to slip below the constant stream of words my mind generates and I discover a world that leaves me wordless, breathing deeply and easily, at one with the world around me.
And just as nice as a three hour hot bath is sharing a bath with my girlfriend. We wash each other's hair, we lie in each other's arms, and we meditate together.
They say that a couple that bathes together, stays together.
