Reading for Life

Jack Messenger

Reading requires a delicate combination of absolute concentration with complete relaxation – a rare and precious thing akin to meditation. The advanced posture I have adopted here is only possibe after decades of intense training: do not try this at home.


  1. Wonderful to see you in your natural habitat:) You’ve definitely honed the method and posture into an absolute science. (Great photo!)

  2. Thanks for the humor. Reading is one of my favorite sports/meditations/endeavors!

  3. This pose may look easy but I know from bitter experience how tricky it can be. Respect to a consummate professional. Keep up the great work!
