Salute

I awaken with the sun.
Contemplation and thanksgiving dominate my thoughts.

Blood flow increases to the muscles and brain as I begin to move, fluidly, naturally, rhythmically.

The breath deepens. 

Vagus nerve is stimulated. 

I begin to salivate as the parasympathetic nervous system engages, ushering in a sense of relaxed but alert calm.

I am limitless in this moment, sounds all around.

I am enmeshed within this life experience.  

A stowaway within this body, my soul clings tightly to the spine.

Movement jostles it free if but for a moment, reminding me once again

to be.
