If your goal is to open, to live centrifugally rather than centripetally, you can do that only insomuch as you welcome all the data of your environment in, your desk, your instrument, the room, the individuals in it, the yards, the mountains and seas beyond. Breathe it all in and feel its influence. Let your ankles, your wrists, and your neck know about it, particularly your ankles. Let them be free. It’s a life work.
