Blackwell North Amer
Sometimes in their chanting monks will land upon a note and sing it in florid fashion, one syllable of text for fifty notes of chant. Melisma, they call it.
Living a melismatic life in imitation of plainchant, we may stop on an experience, a place, a person, or a memory and rhapsodize in imagination. Some like to meditate or contemplate melismatically, while others prefer to draw, build, paint, or dance whatever their eye has fallen upon.
Living one point after another, is one form of experience, and it can be emphatically productive. But stopping for melisma gives the soul its reason for being.

short personal descriptions on applying monastic practices to everyday life. had a few good points to it but read more like a series of excerpts, could be read in several sittings, or on a bus etc.
