Acupuncture for the Soul
In the morning, when I open the computer, I am eager to get to the blank screen. The whiteness appears and I feel soothed. My finger pads race over the keys. It's acupuncture for the soul. The rhythmic tapping relaxes me: deepens my breathing, settles my body, opens my mind. I feel spacious and receptive. I don't know what will come. I don't know my mood, what I will do, what I will say. I have no idea who I am yet. Only this: the tips of my fingers connect with the keys and they feel alive.
Then I feel alive--and ready.
