29/365 – Meditation Games #29 – Sweet Spot

In many ways the simple nature and need of pets is envious to us human types. Pets go through life with very specific needs and wants, and as far as trying to satisfy them, much of the time it’s as easy as finding a nice little spot where they like to be skritched or petted and giving them a few minutes of relaxed satisfaction. If only we were so easy to please.

27/365 – Meditation Games #27 – Blog Therapy

Today’s entry from Anton is a little closer to me because it hits up a practice that I’ve been doing on and off since about 2004 or so in blogging/journaling.

Some of the charm of figuring out these games without any text is how the flow or the gameplay is supposed to work. Without any real guidance, you’re thrown into things much like how Nick intends you to literally be tossed in the sea, struggling to swim to shore as you try to figure out where you’re supposed to go and how you’re supposed to go about doing it.
