Emperor and the Earworm
I could do C Major both hands descending at 90 bpm twice in a row before fumbling. Then I did it twice more before the wheels came off (again). I think it should count though.
On to Phase 3.
Time bookstanding today: 40 minutes Quality of meditation (out of 10): 5
Note: I had some trouble filtering out a song called Emperor during meditation this morning. It's a piano piece from Ian Ring, a composer and solo pianist who apparently lives only a few miles from me. The song is beautiful and calming, spreading outwards, but it doesn't seem to resolve into a final, stable chord. This sense of neverending expansion made it an earworm that stayed with me most of the day. I didn't mind at all.
