Monkey mind (91)

May 21, 2022

With this prompt #260 Sammi celebrates five years of hosting the Weekend Writing Prompt. That’s a lot of words and a pretty notable achievement.

Congratulations, Sammi, and happy anniversary!

Monkey mind (91)

Your back complains when you settle down on the cushion. You try, but after a minute you oblige the pain and move to your chair. You set the timer and, shoulders straight, hands resting in your lap you let your gaze fall where it will. A deep breath and—


Trying to reach the omphalos through breath you focus on the sensation of your abdomen rising and falling, rising and falling, and—

Thoughts. Unwanted visitors. Where did you come from?




In… out…


Relax, refocus, repeat.

Just breathe.
