22 February

Wake. Breathe with the nose through the nose. Nine months ago your left nostril. You couldn’t breathe through your left nostril. Maybe all of the snorting of the drugs or maybe not who can say.

But now feel the breath. Awake, unhungover, a quick gratitude for the nostril and the breath.

Wake and immediately roll over and grab your phone and immediately check your messages without even thinking to yourself now it is time to immediately roll over and grab my phone and check my messages, this is what I want to do, check my phone, after first breathing.

Instinct, like breath. Is it addiction or compulsion, with the phone after waking, and just what is the difference between use and abuse, who can say.

All good change requires deliberation. Liberate, deliberate, breathe. The gravity  of the phone like the gravity of the pills. Wake, and feel it.
