My friends have been telling me I seem different. Calmer.”What does Jimmy think?” they ask me.

Finally, I can tell them that Jimmy – my husband and biggest critic/supporter -agrees.

“Do you think I’m different?” I asked him for the 59th time, 6 months after I started my practice.

“You’re more engaged,” he said, after a moment’s hesitation.

“More present?” I asked.

Pause.

“Yes.”
