March 14, 2019, Weather: Tempestuous, Art: Understanding Hopper, Thought: Conscious Breathing

Atmosphere:

Windy and stormy today. Storms could be severe this afternoon and tonight. High today 71. It will turn colder tomorrow, but now that spring has a toehold we won’t be plunging back into the deep freeze after this weather event. Temps will be in the 40’s tomorrow through the weekend.

Breathtaking

“From first cry to last sigh, we do it without a thought. Yet the benefits of conscious breathing are truly remarkable.”
