Deep breathing, however, made 25 minutes feel more like ten minutes. It's a relaxation technique that I learned last winter, and if you've never practiced it, I highly recommend it. I didn't twitch, cough, itch, or otherwise screw up the scan. Yay, me! (And the MRI was for nothing serious, so no worries.)
Speaking of breathing, when we were in Hawaii a few years ago, we took a dolphin cruise that included a stop to snorkel over a gorgeous reef. During the safety briefing, the captain said that he'd been asked how people can breathe under the water, and his response was, "You can't." He's right. That's why the sentiment on today's card has its "head" sticking up out of the water.

To make these waves, I used a new ink pad (Ranger Archival aquamarine) that I truly love (will be buying more Ranger Archival ink pads!) combined with Hero Arts soft pool. The stamp is an old, old, old Hero Arts swish shadow stamp.
We're all floating around in the ocean of life, keeping our heads above the waves and breathing deeply of wonderful air. So remember to breathe...and to be grateful for those deep, relaxing, cleansing breaths that get us through awkward situations.
