Live to breathe

Breathe to live

One without the other and there would be nothing

Nothing may be something

something is always nothing






this is not breath

breath is gone before the mind can tolerate the thought of not having it

Life is what was

what is

never what could be

Once a breath is taken and a heartbeat sounds then life exists

not in a dream

or fantasy

or thought

or feeling

these are not what life are

life itself creates these things

Without them life would be death
