2. SILENT NIGHT?
"Once the generator goes off you'll be plunged into silence under a canopy of the most amazing stellar constellations".
A night of gentle rocking in the cradle of a super-comfy mattress on the Top Deck, with gentle (natural) aircon wafting through & gentle serenading from the corner...
OK, so the last bit's BS - the Human Chainsaw in the corner was pumping out the vibes from some unholy hour of the morning!
But let's try something different - rather than fight it, let's embrace it (the sound, not the Chainsaw). A different kind of meditation, for sure, but with a bit of imagination (well, OK, a LOT of imagination) it's not that different to the chanting of the Gyuto Monks. Not sure at which part of the meditation I 'broke through', but after a stretch skywards and prayers to the Universe, to Mother Earth, to those around me, to The Family and to myself, I flaked out for the remainder of a most magnificent night.
