The results and analysis of my “Mindfully Productive” experiment have gone up! You can find them here! The experiment tracked my productivity across days I meditated and days I did not meditate, settling whether or not morning meditation has an effect on my daily productivity.

My earliest memory frightens me.
I recall being inside the screened-in patio of my parents’ Florida home. It was muggy. I was naked. I am running my two-year-old body through the patio door into the tall-grassed lawn toward the ravine that divided the property. I chase a blue ball that I semi-intentionally keep kicking. I watch the ball fall in the water while two yellow marbles emerge above several feet of murky, turbulent water. The marbles creep along until they grow a snout, nostrils, and a scaly, elongated jaw. I scream. My mother comes running out, older brother in tow, spends one heartbeat recognizing the situation and the next carrying me like a football toward the house.
