But I came across an article in 'Slow' magazine about learning to meditate to heavy metal music.
|Sad to hear of 'Slow''s closure, by the way|
Because I can't stand heavy metal music...well most of it...and I thought if I could learn to meditate while sounds I hate ring all around me wouldn't that make me some kind of zen master of meditation?

But the article is about a lady named Kerryx who actually likes heavy metal music and teaches classes in a small mirrored room with the lights turned down low and the sound turned up high.
Sounds like torture to me, but Kerryx finds it a soothing practice.
Not that I do have a neighbour who lives next door to me doing that, but be warned that if you ever moved next door to me and refused to turn your music down after a few reasonable requests, because all I can say is take a look at that 'Bongripper' album cover above for my "Plan B";-)
Then again I may just try for silence instead;-)

Not to mention that I also wrote a post about seeing Jennifer Lawrence's movie 'Mother!' on my birthday -
FUTURE FOSSILS #41 – HANNAH YATA (ART, WILDERNESS, REBELLION), the Movie 'Mother!' and Being at the Crossroads
But I like the idea of starting my iPod on
'Adventure of a Lifetime' rather than a silent track, as it gives me a feeling that I'm off on an adventure, even if I'm just off to the shops to grab some milk and bread.
And besides I can always hit the skip button if I don't want a cold play;-)
