Our Neighbors: Learning to breathe

Kaiilama Morris lays her hand on my forearm, leaning in across the coffee table to make a point, punctuating it with her two quick laughs and the little hiccup in between, her purple sweater bright over her red-striped shirt, her dolphin earrings swimming in sudden circles.
Her hand is warm and strong. It is a
conversational gesture, a second's touch through a grey wool sweater and black turtleneck, but I feel loved. I feel safe.
It was something of this generosity and confidence, how a skilled farmer cradles a shaky new lamb, that Kaiilama must have revealed 15 years ago at a weekend workshop on therapeutic breath education.
"I was paired up with a friend and I was so nervous," Kaiilama remembers.
