Please gather these materials before you start:

- Bonus: A few Leaves of Grass
- Notebook or Blank paper
I want to share a poem with you by Walt Whitman from his book, “Leaves of Grass,” I will say a line of the poem. Please repeat after me.
I CELEBRATE myself, and sing myself,
And what I assume you shall assume,
For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you.
I loafe and invite my soul,
I lean and loafe at my ease observing a spear of summer grass.
Set aside 30 minutes with your care partner for this session.
