I think electricity was the most interesting invention.

This is englightening. We take electricity for granted, but its mainstream use is a relatively recent phenomenon. We'll talk like this about the Internet when we're old geezers, too.

First of all, huge congratulations on beating cancer. I've got too many close people die of it. I'm very happy for you and your family, which I'm sure has suffered a lot too.

Now the question: do you recommend any special technique or reading about meditation and/or mindfulness? I'm going through some rough times right now and could use any help.

Sorry if the question is lame, but you said the thing about smelling nice several times. Is it because usually men smell bad, or because women smell extraordinarily well?

I'm afraid the Buddhist temple is not an option. I live in a small City in Spain, and there is nothing of that sort. A pity, because I like Buddhism's ideas. I love how it starts acknowledging that "life is suffering". Like having a friend tell you: "yes, life kinda sucks; but I'm going to tell you how to make it suck less".

But I'll try Headspace, thank you.
