Dalek says relax!

Today's word of the day (eupnea) reminded me of when I was young, and I would think about how very tiring it sounded to have to breathe day after day, year after year, and never be able to take a rest from it.  I would consider this whole life stretched before me, and its inescapable breathing.

In that way, I was a rebellious child:  I hated any thing that must always be done.  Whether or not I enjoyed it, or the result of it, was beside the point.

It seems that in my adult life I fell out of the habit of considering such things.  Too rushed, I think.  As good an argument as any for slowing down and meditating.  I used to meditate as a child too, although I don't think I gave it a name at the time.

I feel tired thinking about that.

Friending welcome, but lurking is fine too.

Constructive criticism is also welcome - whatever it is, trust me, I've heard worse.
