“Being still is the greatest activity in my day. I sit before any of the sounds of life appear. I only hear the birds. Even when I sit alone it feels like others are nearby. The room and the mood here change after meditation. In this room I can just roll out of bed, and the sun changes the dark slowly over my shoulder.”

“I like sitting on pillars or places that are high up. I’m used to being quiet and still—I was brought up by nuns. I started sitting on the refrigerator after a friend came to cook in my kitchen. I don’t use the refrigerator for anything else—it’s empty. I needed a place to rest. Being above makes me feel like a rock on the mountain. I especially like to walk in the forest. There I look for tall tree stumps.”
