that old feeling

i have to confess..

during my morning commute, which can take from 15 to 40 minutes depending on traffic, I've been chanting in the car. Usually while listening to some dance/techno remix on XM. When something with a good beat comes on, I start with two or three warm up 'Oms'.. something like:
aaaooomm.... (inhale)
aaaaaooohmmm.. (bigger inhale)
aaaAAAAOOOOHHHMM.. (huge long inhale)

and then after I've gotten that through, i might chant out an oldie but goodie:

om mani padme hum.. om mani padme hum..

and do that awhile. Chanting is good. It brings me in focus and gets me fully breathing and awake.

but this morning, i spent the commute fighting off some insane urge to acquire a book copy of 'twilight' (which I'm gonna start calling twat-like) just so I can see what its like. thankfully, the urge passed once i got to work, but we'll see how that goes.
