and breathe, just breathe.

...the fortune teller who read my tarot cards on New Year's Eve also told me, "... you don't sleep well."  Oddly enough, on that night I found myself thinking, No, I sleep fine.  Last night, as I tossed and turned with anxiety and a multitude of thoughts, I realized that she was right.  I don't sleep … Continue reading and breathe, just breathe.
