Start with one thing--one plant, one animal. Love that being. Connect to that being.
Slowly, reach out to the next--it doesn't matter if it takes hours, weeks, or lifetimes. Time and opportunity you have. Love, you have. Connection, you have (and can re-learn, incidentally).
All you need is one breath's worth of open mindedness. That's it. One breath.
You've got to breathe, haven't you?
