The most important thing I did all day

May 1, 2014

I felt foggy today.
Sluggish, but such a frantic slug.
Lots to do, unable to focus.
So I gave up.
Took my tea out onto my stoop and sat in the glorious sun and did–
well absolutely nothing!–
and yet
the cells of my cells swirled back into place, and my hands marveled at
smooth china curve of cup
and my toes gripped sun-hot brick and–
whoosh of relief in my lungs,
all my green leaves flapping joyfully–
I was back.
