Breathing

There is more than breathing.
Breathing is what you do first, when you wake up, before you start singing, as you dive into the water.
But after the breathing, that is your life.
So many choices, so many opportunities, so many places to go and things to see.
There are your hands. First, you breathe, so your hands can move.
Then, you use them. You build something, you paint a picture, you write a book.
There are your eyes. First, you breathe, so your eyes can function.
Then, you use them. You witness a storm, you watch a movie, you read a book.
All the while, you are breathing, but more importantly, all the while, you are living.
Breathing is basic. Breathing is essential.
Breathing is first and breathing is last.
And in between, living.
