RRRR: magnesium proficiency

One minute, I'm sitting in the tallest of treetops, at eye-level with the bald eagles that I spotted from the beach the previous weekend. My ultimate happy place. Together, we survey from a great height, the rugged coastline that I‘ve walked and skipped and tripped many times.

We can see creatures of the sea from this tree. Sea creatures that I usually can't see, as they're swimming underneath me. And those green fuzzy space-rocks that I so often leap along, whiskey carefully in hand at the sacrifice of balance, are so teeny from up here. I am so teeny from up here!

The next minute, I'm floating weightlessly through a landscape of stars. In the near-darkness, I catch glimpses of people and places I've been, as they pass pristinely in my peripheral. Stories we shared, conversations and punchlines, are seemingly pulled from the deepest vault of my mind. Sometimes I'll pause to look at someone, wonder about them, wish them warm thoughts, when warranted.

I'm deep asleep, undoubtedly, with a smile on my face, I'm dreeeeaming...

Wait. No! My eyes are actually wide open. I am wide awake in a pitch-black, coffin-like tank. Lying stark naked in a shallow bath of salt water that is the same exact temperature as the air and the surface of my skin. Oh geez, the air is so gotdam thick in here! Chicago summer thick. I can hardly breathe at all, and I can't see it - nor anything for that matter - but I know that the ceiling is a mere couple feet from my face. Holy claustrophobia!

Relax, Lippy. Set it aside. Return to that tree, to those crafty eagle friends. Or how about paddling into this here perfect wave...
