    Hearing the beat of life in ourselves does bring us back to the life force essence. Simply, beautifully penned.

    This beautifully captures that feeling, Kristen. . . I've been there . . . and "touches a sore point" probably literally as well as emotionally. Thank you.

    This one certainly captures the tension involved. Getting down to essentials a long way further than 'I am what I eat'. The brevity and the one line form suits the content very well.
