it had been a long time. far too long. it was time to jump back in. and it was the only thing I was certain would help relax my shoulder and neck muscles. they have been knotted with stress since last week.
I shouldn't have been away from work so long at lunch. but I had to. and it felt good. great actually. that first stroke. even the last.
such a feeling of peace. of mindfulness of the position of every limb. of forgetfullness of absolutely everything else.
the knots aren't completely gone, but I'm hopeful the therapist can work them out tomorrow. and for now I'm much more relaxed. and I know I can complete the first part in six short days.
