    Since Iím off work with Covid Iíve reverted to my internal clock of staying up until midnight. And because of covid I tend to sleep 12 hours a night. (Yes, still after 2 months ... itís a slow recovery and at this point Iím hoping Iím not one of those long haulers who goes on disability). My husband generally goes to bed at 7 and gets up at 4.

    This is a foreshadow of when we are both retired, and it works. He gets mornings alone and I get evenings alone and we have about 8 hours together.

    And yes, it would bother me to be quarantined together and on the same sleep/wake schedule. I need time alone.

    My late DH knew that I was doing my prayer/meditations and simply sat in his recliner beside me, closed his eyes and stayed quiet. It was such a special time of harmony for both of us which I do miss now.
    Gandhi: Happiness is when what you think, what you say and what you do are in harmony .

    My husband is the meditator in our house and he goes into his spot each morning. I don't bother him. What is particularly cute is that the dogs meditate with him, lying there really quiet on the floor.

    This spiritual practices and the sayings/ chants are really nice!

    DH will occasionally make fun of me for something and I tell him to go...well I think you can figure out what I tell him.

    But as I have mentioned several times, an aid to meditative contemplation and the centered life is: having two homes!There are days where I have no interruptions.

    I like my solitude, and boy howdy do I have it now! If I had a partner, I would definitely be up for two houses, or at least a duplex.
