  • There is this fantastical notion out there about knowing how long One might live.

    Would you want to know?
    no.. .why no

    Not No, Not yes... but the gesture of knowing. Not an approximation, but the feeling of deciding

    ah.. a thoughtful life maybe
    Family, children, a long loving relationship forward and backwards . Connected!
    A matter of Art?
    Being someone Important ?
    A long list of descriptive chances that leads you on, led you on, made you... YOU...

    What if it was NOT how long but how well?
    What would happen if it was actually Life, measuring the count of Breaths?
    What would you do with That , as a currency?
    Remember or forget?
    casually act independently?
    discard even the thought of it?
    Embrace the tickling magic that resides just at the border of knowing ... knowing .
    It's always been this way.

    Would you entirely embrace the idea of Intentional breathing.. breathing slowly, so has to keep track of a score as if in a game?
    What is most important to what is created, in the living past at hand, behind you?

    Would you practice breathing so you could double the amount of breaths you had? Triple? MORE?
    Is there such a thing as being Intimate?
    What or who would you be if you choose that?
    Would one need a special place?
    Would you attain the ability to slow yourself down when sleeping?
    What would you be in that last breath?
