13. Three Aphora

Sometimes I sits an thinks and sometimes I jist sit. Sometimes I jist sit on the wee dykie at the bottom o the gairdin. I dinna think aboot onythin in parteecular bit it's affa fine jist sittin there. It struck me that this wiz probably fit "meditation's" aboot. Patanjali pulled thegithir fit thinkin thir wiz on meditation and yoga mair than a thoosin 'ear ago. His wee bookie's ca'd, "The Aphorisms of Patanjali" so, fin this tune cam intae ma heed 'n I noticed that it wiz in waltz time, I thocht I'd ca't "Three Aphora".

Sometimes I sit and think and sometimes I just sit. Sometimes I sit on a small wall in the garden. I do not think of anything in particular but it is pleasant to just sit. This relates to the concept of 'meditation'. Patanjali wrote about this more than a thousand years ago. His book is called 'The Aphorisms of Patanjali'. When this tune appeared I noticed that it was in waltz time so I called it 'Three Aphora'.
