– Be good to it.

It’s important to gratify the body.

Those are the words of a yoga teacher. She said them before our brief rest period. I thought of them again when, at the end of the hour on Wednesday, we massaged our own faces and scalps.

A person can interpret this value any way s/he likes. I do not think, however, that Portia meant we should press our faces into a bag of Doritos or have yet another cup of coffee, which is what I am doing right now, at my desk.

There are many things she might have meant. This is worth thinking about.
