Kara, what paint color did you use in the room with the TV? We're trying to paint a wall in our living room gray and would love to use your color!

I attended a Vipassana course many years ago and it was a truly incredible experience. After the course, I expererienced everything through a new lens. I felt more autonomous and equanimous than ever before. Congratulations on finishing and having such a great experience at your session.

we are almost always shoeless, except for big parties where shoes are part of people's outfits and we don't want to be the shoe police. for extended family, regular visitors (babysitters, neighbors, close friends) we have no problem asking for shoe removal. we also picked up tons of cheap slippers from chinatown for $2/each to keep for regular visitors. They all have a set of slippers of their own at our house.

I am also looking for a nice sleep/sit convertible solution and recently came across this piece at The Door Store in Manhattan. The swivel combinations and modern look are pretty cool.They also sell them online at Tiny Living http://www.tinyliving.com/store/product/2114/square-sleeper-chair-red/ and http://www.tinyliving.com/store/product/2112/swivel-sofa-sleeper%2C-red/

The fabric was not lux but seemed good enough to withstand day use, then presumably you'd put a pad and/or sheet on it for sleeping so it's texture won't be so important at night.
It seemed nicely firm and comfortable and quite roomy width/lengthwise during the show room visit but couldn't really tell if it'd be good for long term sleeping.
Can anyone else vouch for the sleep experience?
