To breathe is to live.
Inhaling, internalizing what is external,
and exhaling, externalizing what is internal;
In this, there is an essential oneness with the universe.
How could it be otherwise?
For God hath so created us connected with the cosmos.
What happens, then, when to breathe is to die?
When the air,
wild-fired orange-tinted burns us
hurricane water-drenched drowns us.
When what is external is internal,
how then can the mind deny what the body knows;
that the climate has changed,
for we can feel it in our bones?
