I close my eyes. Deep breath in….and out. IN annnnnnnd OUT. I've got his. Breathe INNNNNNN annnnnd yeah this is EASY! I should have started doing this a long time ago. I should write about this! I could write a book on meditation. What should I write about today when the timer goes off? OH! It’s April! April Fool’s Day! Remember when I pranked my fifth grade teacher and told her I got stung by a bee and I was allergic? As an adult, I can now see why she didn’t find that funny. 

Oh yeah, breathe IN…...and…..OUT. 

I wonder what the sky is doing right now? I can tell the sun is up. I bet it looks pretty. I want to look...but….I can’t open my eyes. I REALLY want to open my eyes. Don’t do it. Maybe just a peek *opens eyes* WOW *quickly shuts eyes* I’m glad I looked. What a sky. It reminds me of the pink sky the night we got in the river in Yosemite. I think that was the coldest water I’ve ever been in--

BREATHE IN….and...OUT. INNNNNN and OUTTTTTTT. IN ANNNNNNNND OUT. My nose itches. My foot itches. INNNNNN and OUT. I think there is a hair on my face, I just need to get it so I can keep meditating. *gets hair off face* ugh my hair is a mess. BREATHE IN and--what am I going to do with my hair when I am 80? Will it be long and white and tangled with twigs like a bird’s nest, or will I someday go for the grandma cut? When does that happen? Is there a set age when that takes place? BREATHE IN AND OUT. *can’t stop picturing myself with grandma hair* Robby will have such cute old man hair. Lucky. 

BREATHE INNNNNNNN annnnnnd OUUUTTTTT. Has it been five minutes yet? It feels like 20. Did I forget to set an alarm? Maybe I’m not good at mediation after all. Why is it so hard? What am I doing wrong? Why can’t I clear my head? BREATHE INNNNNNNNN and OUTTTTTT. 

I’m thinking of nothing. Nothing. Nothing nothing nothing. Look at me! I’m doing it!

What’s for dinner tonight?

my life, in 24 hours

Most would just use a calendar, measuring time as the years pass, one by one. But I feel like my life has flown by in only hours. The first hour I remember my earliest, I’m laughing; gasping through g

love is...

What is love? It is needed, right now, I do know that. Love can be the usual-- the candy and the hearts and the flowers, though this has never been my favorite kind of love. Love is cliche. Love gentl
