Hi Mario

I hope you get the chance of attending a silent meditation retreat at some stage.

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Many years ago I was living as the caretaker in the communal house in a mountainous commune where people owned their own homes off in the woods and only the communal house had electricity and running water (lucky me!). My bedroom (where I also meditated) was tucked away in a niche of the attic and the adjacent niche turned out to be the kids TV room where they watched cartoons (with no adult supervision) early every morning that they did not have to go to school....this time slot also happened to by my morning meditation time....no doors...only hanging cloth between us.

It was really difficult at first but I persevered and after awhile I could actually mediate with a half dozen kids watching cartoons just two draped cloths away.

I really think that noise need not be a game stopper.
