In the meantime we loved the idea and will be diving into the list for some helpful suggestions to improve our approach to stilness and away from busyness. Which one will you read first?...

"I know you’re very busy, Prime Minister. We’re all busy. Meditating monks in their cells are busy. That’s adult life, filled to the ceiling with things that need doing. (It seems only children and the elderly aren’t plagued by lack of time—and notice how they enjoy their books, how their lives fill their eyes.) But every person has a space next to where they sleep, whether a patch of pavement or a fine bedside table. In that space, at night, a book can glow."
