For many years, it became about deprivation: No candy, no dessert, no French fries. But it is time to deprive myself of certain agitation, of the inability to settle down—as if my skin is lit with low fire. If I can find peace for even five minutes each day, I cannot help but expect a renewal, a return to something that I may have always missed.


  1. You write beautifully.

  2. Jennifer, thank you so much! I appreciate your comment.
