Ok...now listen. A hospital Brat is better than no Brat. You find yourself a calm space and close your eyes for a minute and take in the smell. Kraut too? Oh...yum! With mustard. Just how it ought to be! And German Potato Salad?? Yeeesss! You just sit with that lovely lunch and stay in the moment and eat it slowly and sip your Coke. Things will be ok. Smoking will not change anything, we know this. At this point it would make you feel so bad in so many ways. Fall is hard. Trust me, I know this. That scooter adventure helped a ton last night! It’s ok though. It is just the slow release of the hot summer days. It is bringing the rest needed for things to renew and grow again and you know what? We are doing that too. Just still yourself and let it be. This wave is gonna pass. Yeah, another one coming, but you can’t stop them. A wise friend told me not too long ago to stand at the water’s edge and let the earth lap gently at my feet and soothe me. So you do that just now. Those waves are there, gently lapping and bringing calm and new little bits washing up. They are always there Tiny. Just take a deep breath and stand there at the edge and let the calming rhythmic movements soothe you. I think tomorrow will be a beach day and somewhere out there is a Starfish waiting to be found. I will take a soft touch from you and let it know that someone in Montana is thinking about it.

Ok...time to reach down and rub that Lily. Slow and easy. You are stronger than you know Love. You rub that Lily and lower that gaze. Eyes on sight Tiny. Dead nuts center. Hold your breathe a second and keep your focus. Let it out real slow...ready? One more step. Don’t move your gaze. Right on target. That Oak Tree has not moved.

Dammit I'm crying into my kraut. What an awful feeling. I'm going to use this ocean idea. Lapping on my feet in the soft sand and seeking out tidal pools with little critters like starfish. God, I hope this passes because I've never wanted to smoke this bad. Ever. Gently touch a starfish for me because I need him so badly. I need the calm so much right now. I just want to be soothed.

You’re ok. It will pass. There is nothing...nothing I tell you so soothing as those waves lapping at your feet just now. Oh, the cool salt air...close your eyes and breathe deeply. So many little critters...

And horrible birds. Sea faring birds. I can't remember what the ocean sounds like but I want to. Maybe they have that on my app. I'm checking

Oh...they are not the same out there as the ones inland. Not horrible. Part of the cycle of life there. Yes, find the Ocean on your app.
