Enjoy this moment of self care as Julie Potiker leads you through this guided meditation. She completes the meditation with a reading of the poem, At My Window", by Mark Nepo."

At the Window, By Mark Nepo

I was at the window

when a fly near the latch

was on its back spinning —

legs furious, going nowhere.

I thought to swat it

but something in its struggle

was too much my own.

It kept spinning and began to tire.

Without moving closer, I exhaled

steadily, my breath a sudden wind,

and the fly found its legs,

rubbed its face

and flew away.

I continued to stare at the latch

hoping that someday, the breath

of something incomprehensible

would right me and

enable me to fly.
