The Wall Street Journal: 20 ODD QUESTIONS (with David Lynch)

20 ODD QUESTIONS
Updated July 21, 2012, 8:38 p.m. ET

David Lynch

The dark (and sometimes light) director on the joys of finger painting, how he meditates and the newspaper-tossing techniques of his youth

Some excerpts:

Mr. Lynch embraced transcendental meditation around the time he made the 1977 curiosity “Eraserhead,” and since 2005 has headed the David Lynch Foundation, a charity he created to fund the teaching of T.M. in schools. It’s become a consuming mission.

I can’t live without coffee, transcendental meditation, American Spirit cigarettes, a freedom to create ideas that flow and my sweet wife, Emily. And this business of just being able to work and think: It’s really, really beautiful.

You don’t need a special place to meditate. You can transcend anywhere in the world. The unified field is here, and there, and everywhere. Maybe if you sat on a bed of nails to do it…no, not so much comfort. Find a comfy chair, though, close your eyes and away you go!
