All of the Waters

Last night I went out to dinner with my super terrific new friend Amy. She would be talking about something and I would get excited and say something and sometimes one of us would interrupt the other but then we'd always remember to go back to that exact spot in the other person's story. Undeniable good times: laughing, nodding, "Me too!"ing, oh and also, eating.

About halfway through the meal, I realized I was, well, about halfway through the meal. I had been eating the whole time, but sorta having too much fun to be paying attention to eating. I noticed my body: I was leaning way forward, my legs were crossed and I was holding onto my belly a little bit. So, I uncrossed my legs, leaned back, took a deep breath and "let all of the waters of (my) belly settle down," which is something Elena Brower reminded me to do in yoga class once. I started noticing each bite as I picked it up, put it into my mouth, and tasted it. And guess what? I was able to continue to do ALL that stuff, even breathe deeply WHILE still having a total first-rate time with Amy! Sometimes, I'm so good at multitasking, I freak myself out.
