Breathe! Deep breath… in. Deep cleanse…out. When school has wrapped up for the year and baseball season is over and the last end-of-the-season party has finished and the final honors night has been attended, breathing is something you can do again. It’s not like you couldn’t breathe before, its just that you had to do shallow breathing! Shallow breathing may oxygenate your body and keep you going, but its the deep breathing that enables you to rest and enjoy life again.
My husband fishes so that he can do his deep breathing. There is something about being out on a little boat in a big river that helps him recover from the daily grind. My boys have been hooked by this pastime too.
This group doesn’t have to catch a fish to get that ship-shape, deep-breath feeling. Just being out there on the river is good enough.
This dog loves a good into-the-wind jaunt on the boat. Tongue hanging out, slightly panting, all excited about what may happen out there on the water… she reminds me that I need to be taking some deep breaths right now. This is the season for deep breaths!!
With all the inhalation, I’m setting my sinker on the idea that I can actually post to this blog once a week. One could say that I’ve been giving this blog too much breathing space. Thanks for not giving up on me during my lull these past months. With the fresh air and a little fish and grits for breakfast, I’ll be blogging like mad this summer.
See you soon,
