Back aching, early morning light. Muscles have become weak, over a long period of time. Need to strengthen the muscles in my back, a little each day. I walk. But also need to do a little more. Conscious of breathing out slowly, just for a few minutes, seems to happen each day, just noticing, things, ways of being that are so often imperceptible. What do you want to do today? I ask. And, in the same breath, ask how do I want to be today. Just being is a practise each day, so often unaware.
