Challenge: Write a short entry (100 words or less) on a topic beginning with the sequential letter of the alphabet.
Breath is such a simple thing, in some ways; it’s easy to ignore what a gift it is until it’s the last one. For those with asthma or other illnesses that affect the lungs, it’s never taken for granted. Though it’s merely air that passes through our lungs and in and out of our noses or mouths, it can convey so many messages: Sensuality; warmth; coolth (yes, it’s a word); exasperation; satisfaction, and even attraction. It can be turned into a whistle, and has even inspired the concept for an upcycled air-conditioner in third-world countries. Ain’t breath cool?

As someone who had horrendous asthma while growing up, I take every breath happily, and never for granted! My mother recently developed it too, so now she is experiencing the lack of breath I’d wish on no one. 😦 But yeah, breath can convey so many things: nearly every emotion in the book!
My husband also has asthma; he keeps active with fitness, so that he doesn’t lose ground with it, but is also thankful to live in an age that has found a medicine to help counter it…
