Do this: Close your eyes.
From the bottom of your feet, up your legs; into you groin, into your abdomen, up your back, your chest, down your arms; up your face, up your skull, across your scalp, every piece fo skin, what is it that you feel, not generally, but specifically. hold it all in you mind
move your tongue about, what do you taste, a filling? that last bit of popcorn, the mustard from a sandwich; the dryness of salt?
hold it all
breathe in deeply through your nose, without losing focus, add that feeling of air coursing into your lungs and out again
now sample the air, what do you smell, the faintest hint of decay, dryness in the air, a faint whiff of deodorant, of bleach, of pinsol, electronics
now hold that in your mind;
now listen, the wind against your eardrums; in the trees, an engine starting, a car rolling past; faint laughter in the distance, cicadas strumming; birds landing, what do you hear, hold it in your mind
now, open your eyes, do not allow the sight to overwhelm all that you are holding steady in your mind; the inclination is to let sight wash the rest to background;
don’t allow it. look at it all, see each piece, each tarnish, the wind moving the trees; the blue quality of light
Now just be, in that moment, seconds slipping by but not passing each one held and let slip seconds dripping by.
