Exhale.

Exhale. Sigh deeply. Sometimes that’s what’s necessary to be able to move forward.

Irritation builds and then you work your body into a state of frenzy.

Exhale. Exhale again.

Then you can laugh.

At Siri, for example. AI isn’t quite taking over the world yet, judging by that. I ask to play the Goldberg Variations. It registers this, feeding it back in text. A dialogue with iTunes launches. Which starts playing “One Night Stand” by Janis Joplin.

When did you forget that you could also exhale?
