...a wonderful moment.


Breathing

Breathing in, 
I know I am breathing in.
Breathing out, 
I know.
As the in-breath grows deep, the out-breathe grows slow.
Breathing in makes me calm.  
Breathing out makes me ease.
With the in-breathe, I smile.
With the out-breathe, I release.
Breathing in, there is only the present moment.
Breathing out, it is a wonderful moment.

Thich Nhat Hanh


To you having a wonderful moment.

Yes his book is so lovely. I use it when I am teaching yoga often. He speaks of simple everyday moments with such grace.
