The long blink
You know when you hear a sound and all you can do is blink a long, extended blink? Sometimes you add a long exhale. We do it for strength, perspective, a moment of reflection on the sheer stupidity of what we just did. Not quite sure what I'm talking about? Picture this: you hand the screaming toddler in the backseat a container of Cherrios on the ride home hoping she'll be distracted enough to calm down and eventually fall asleep. Thunk. Tink. Tink. Tink. Cheerios fly, bounce, and roll everywhere. Head back. Long blink. Head down. Long exhale. Practice with me now. Head back. Long blink. Head down. Long exhale. Again.....
