It's time for me to relax, folks.
How do I best do that?
I go upstairs and draw me a
nice hot tub of water in cool weather,
or a nice comfortable slightly cool
tub of water in warm weather.
Then I submerge myself up to my
chin in my delightful watery comfort
zone (yes, my knees stick up out of
the water. but they don't think for
me, so I don't worry about them.
I let my arms float to the surface
of the water. I push them back
under. I then let remain under or
stay on the surface.
I close my eyes and think of nothing.
If a thought comes to mind, I quickly
push it away. Now all is quiet, silent,
I remain at rest. Nothing disturbs me.
The cares of life or the triumphs thereof
are not remembered. All is calm. All is
quiet. All is well. I remain relaxed as
long as I wish.
Yes, this time of quiet will eventually end
and I will find myself once again in the
busy realm of activity.
But the moments of quiet and calm that I
give myself are now eternally mine and
cannot be taken from me.
I shall fondly remember them, and look
forward toward the time I engage them
