The Long Tide

Sarah wanted to talk to the birds. The lady in the bird sanctuary had told her that the way to talk to the birds was to drop into the ‘long tide’, the rhythmic primary respiration breath with the tiny incremental cycle- half a cycle per minute. The lady seemed sure that this would help with the birds. People talked about how the lady healed birds, even ones that were really damaged. So when Sarah got home, she went out back and lay down on the deck and began to slow her breathing down. She lay on her back, arms by her side, and breathed slowly and carefully.
