Jane and I had a good talk this morning about breathing and the pause. She also mentioned a show that she saw previewed called Unnatural Causes. It is on tonight at 10:00 on KQED where I live, and three nights thereafter. It might explain Cheney and his continual grab for more power. The alpha animal actually experiences less stress than the one who lacks control, wallows without hope. It sounds like the show is worthwhile. I am realizing now there is probably a book to accompany it. I will check.
For now, the following is my morning exploration. It allowed me to come to a place of peace, and see how my addictions to perfection and the "need to know" keep me functioning at a pace that is not always helpful.
Notice today when your breath stops, when your heart catches. Notice where you renew. Lee suggested last night I take three breaths between each email. Let's try to take at least one. Inhale - Pause - Exhale - Pause. Ah! Awe!!
