Swallow.

Blink.

Run your finger over the hairs on your arm.

Listen to that sound.

Refill the water in the birdbath.

Breathe.

Arch your back.

Pick a camellia.

Slice bread.

Stand up.

Don’t flinch.

Let a hummingbird mistake you for a flower.

Pick a card, any card.

Stir sugar into your coffee.
