  1. I loved this poem very much. I have done the breathing courses (yoga and Zen summer retreats) and they were fantastic. I know that’s not what you meant, though. Have a cool week ahead. x


    • Thanks, and actually I think that is exactly what I meant and what I need. I don’t feel connected to my breath and I’ve noticed I’ve been holding my body tight, perhaps in response to a lot of change, and my sense is that learning to breathe again might be very good for my mental, physical and spiritual health. So whether you meant to or not, you’ve provided me with motivation to pursue this. Peace, Harlon

      • Harlon, that’s wonderful to hear. You have my full support. I have this problem a lot, of keeping my body tense. The practices I’ve mentioned have kept me aware of my body and have taught me to always seek balance. I wish you all the best on your quest. x
