We just sat for 20 minutes here in the Tricycle office, seven of us. Today, since I'm struggling with some pain in my thumb, which I hurt this weekend, and difficulty breathing regularly because of the lingering after-effects of a cold, I began sitting in a state of mild discomfort. After feeling the pain and interference in these areas, I moved on to areas where I was feeling very restful and comfortable: my legs, my back (despite a gentle touch of soreness from all the shoveling I did for my grandmother this weekend), my arms, my neck. Outside the rain was drumming steadily and my mind kept circling back to the difficult winter it's been so far and how the coming storm was filling people with apprehension and fear and would lead to more difficulties for the sick and the elderly and the wory-prone, and parents who have difficulty getting time off work while the snow days keep piling for their children's schools. My main activity was working to keep my breathing natural and regular.
