Being Breath

stories from the wilderness of everyday life

Here I Am

Inhale.

Here I Am.

Knees shaking, arms raised and braced against their trembles in a fierce tightening of biceps and shoulder muscles....

This is me.

Here.

I. 

Am.

 

 

Chest open, breathing.

Fill the lungs, one breath at a time. Let it all go, one breath at a time.

 

From the darkness, of darkness, into light, of light.

Complex as the cosmos - indeed, birthed of it and one with it.

As mundane as this body and the hardened callouses on the bottom of the feet that push down into the ground as I walk ...

One step. Another.

 

Here I Am.

 

Breathe.
