on breathing and the essentials

We breath everyday, but what connection is made when we breathe in other people's air? Since seeing these photos of "Talisman of Breath" at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in early June, the idea of swaping "breaths" has been on my mind. By containing our breath in a little inflatable origami ball that can be given away or lost, we are reminded of what is essential versus what isn't. What if all we needed was to carry a little personal spiritual token everyday?
