I Found A Tick and Other Reasons To Become More Resilient

It’s just a little, little thing, a tick, but, oh, how it focuses the mind. I found a tick on my forearm this past weekend, while I was down in West Virginia. (Or, West By God Virginia, as it’s more rightly called.) The first thing I did, without even thinking, was to start breathing deeply. I felt my belly and my feet.
