i stretch my legs, i notice a need to pee, slight cough in my throat, taking deep breath, calming down, thoughts about lunch and what to do next fleet in and out. i am here. eyes closed. i hear a colleague talk behind me. need to pee. i feel my lips, the skin on my face and cheeks. pains in my fingers and elbows from the ra. i accept it. i try to send the pain, love. i feel calm, grounded. slight wheezy feeling when i breathe, it's ok, i send it love too. feeling warm, grateful for my eyes. breathing through my nose. i wiggle my toes inside my boots, tilt my head. awareness. aware.
