And then it was my turn to give a reading. I was already intimidated knowing that Jim was a professional. “Readers, take a few deep breaths, and begin when you feel ready,” Doreen said. Surprisingly, her calming voice didn’t help. Jim and I sat there with our eyes closed. I waited and waited, and then I waited some more. Oh my God … I’ve got nothing! I was sure Jim had peeked out of one eye, wondering whether I was still there. I could hear the voices of the other students running a mile a minute around me, each describing deceased loved ones, their hobbies, their favorite foods. I could also hear my heart pounding in my chest. I sat there stiff and mute. I was on the verge of hyperventilation and tears when I heard Jim’s voice, “Rena, open your eyes. Just relax and take a deep breath. Remember, there is no such thing as getting nothing. We always get something. Sometimes we just need to start talking. Tell me anything that pops into your head. Let’s get this started.” I nodded, took a deep breath, closed my eyes, and then realized I could smell cookies. I opened my eyes and said, “Cookies. I smell cookies!” Jim shot me a huge smile.
