Before and After

Try pausing right before
and right after 

undertaking a new action, 
even something simple 
like putting a key in a lock 
to open a door. 

Such pauses take a brief moment, 
yet they have the effect
of decompressing time 

and centering you. 

~ Brother David Steindl-Rast, from Gratefulness, the Heart of Prayer: An Approach to Life in Fullness
