Day 16: Retreat

c23090daaadc1cf1a43ce339271185dd

As I reread the posts from the past few days, I can see myself retreating, slowly but surely.

My words become fewer, and the words of others increase. I see this not as running away, fleeing, but as taking a breath. So much has surfaced in my head and heart since beginning a daily practice sixteen days ago, and I need to catch up with myself.

And so I stay here, in my inner world, holding space, and watching thoughts pass by like clouds in the sky.
