STRESS (a micro-moment in the life of Yolantha, ‘the poet’):

It was a very stressful phone call. I was good and behaved myself on the phone. When I hung up I kept repeating “INHALE…EXHALE…INHALE…EXHALE…INHALE…EXHALE” And it was not working. I asked myself, “Self! WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE.” Self responded, “Well, Yolantha, it helps if you actually breathe, as you chant ‘inhale…exhale’ instead of holding your breath as you chant” Yall, I wanted to laugh but instead I focused on breathing for real.
