I try to pray/meditate for 15-20 minutes each morning. What happens most times is I'm good for the first ten minutes, then I get restless, want to get up, and wonder why the alarm I set hasn't gone off yet. I go back and forth with this, until I really start to think I must have forgot to set the alarm. It is like a little game I have to go through every time I sit, called "Don't-touch-the-clock-until-you-hear-the-bell." This morning I sat at 8:45 and set the alarm for 9. In my restlessness I finally succumb an look at my clock: 8:59. The bell goes off in my hand. I wish I could say this was a first.
