The Daily Ummmm??!!
The Daily Um is a humorous meditation
the curious and oft asked question
One day, Gracie, aged 6
told me she had water in her ear.
So I said to her
try meditating for a bit to see if it goes away.
Gracie quickly went into
'the lotus position'
her hands outstretched on her perfect bent knees.
I was very surprised
since to my knowledge
meditation was new to her.
I asked her where she learned how to meditate.
Her answer was
'On a cartoon!'
Then she began saying ' ummm!'
I asked her what she was saying.
She said to me with 'that look' that says 'NONA!!!
I can't believe you don't know this!
You're supposed to say 'ummm!'
