This is the first, the wildest, and the wisest thing I know:
that the soul exists and is built entirely out of attentiveness.
Mary Oliver, Primroses
I thrive on long walks where I find myself slowing down to the rhythm of my own possibilities. That is my speed. There I find my breathing. I used to live in Thailand where the word for breathing, hai jai, is translated as ‘give your heart.’ This used to remind me that to breathe, and to simply be aware of that breath, is to give to your heart.
