How to Have an Interesting Life

EDIT: Welcome, StumbleUpon users! Thanks for checking out my site.

A while back someone e-mailed me and asked me how I had so many interesting experiences in my life. I meant to write him back, but couldn't find the e-mail.

First of all, what constitutes an interesting life? Do we care if OTHER people think it's interesting? Do we care if WE think it's interesting? Does it just have to be different?

1,000 hours of zazen - day 1

On One Thousand Hours of Zazen

My goal is to sit 1000 hours of meditation in 1 year. Accounting for holidays and days when my schedule won't permit, I'm working to a schedule of 3 hours per day. The 3 hours per day will be broken down into 7 sessions of 25 minutes each - 4 sessions in the morning before work, and 3 sessions in the evening. It's an ambitious target, and may require some adjustments (e.g. fewer sessions during work-days and making up for it at the weekend). This blog will be my way of tracking progress in terms of hours logged and noting thoughts and observations about zazen itself.  My belief is that meditation is one of the most important and useful things one can do for oneself. I'll expand on that idea later. 

This morning I woke up at 7am and did 2 sessions of 25 minutes. It's a good start, and I'll make up the extra 2 sessions at lunch time today.
