Journal entry, 8th August 2022
Today the body is in pain, as I go to the floor,
Not one part of me, but all.
the pain- body
Sitting, lying down, turning stretching, it nags like a hungry dog
Time passes, as I start to engage with old patterns, think methodical
Working through the the folds in the joints first, slowing down each articulation, opening up
Trying to find SOME pleasure in this stretch
Even Flexion has pain today?
Flexion my loyal companion of 50 years doesn’t want to know me today
Should I BEND and FOLD in my stretch
Should I REST?
Where is my attention drawn to the most, my body or my mind?
Motor it out?
Work it out ?
Push through it?
Accept where you are?
The answers aren’t easy today.
I can’t hear the body,
