The Zen of Laundering and Ironing

A few months ago, I decided to stop taking my trousers and shirts to the cleaners for washing, and ironing. The financial savings are not insignificant; however I have discovered another benefit. Ironing and folding laundry provide an opportunity for Zen like meditation. The focus of a Zen exercise can be almost anything, so why not a perfectly ironed shirt or Khurta and set of chinos.

And besides, later in the morning, I can wear the results of my handiwork.

What an interesting man he must be. I do meditation and exercise most mornings (I am 67) and still play a pretty good game of tennis. But no head stands or sissor kicks.
