The first reflex, looking at your phone?

Thinking to read the last email, which will follow by sending one?

Do we sit, like the days before we had smartphones and had a ‘busy’ life?

I mean, sit on your couch or at your dining table.

Trying to wake up, yawning a few times, stretching your arms.

Feeling asleep but at the same time awake.

Staring from the window.

Following your thoughts.

Slowly sipping your coffee or tea.

Reading a few pages from the newspaper, I mean not the digital one.

Listening to the sound of water dripping inside of your radiator.

And slowly your eyes get wider.

You are awake and you experience the deep presence of life.
