Muscle Memory

squirrel 005

I awoke in peril while attempting to flee.

I ignored the nurse’s warnings in my haste until

the forced injection insured my compliance.

Muscles have memory…

Whatever happened while I was under…my body

remembered, and at the very first opportunity did its level

best to save me from further trauma.

We’re taught from a young age to negate our body’s warning signs…

Your hair bristling, a pit in the bottom of your stomach, feelings without proof that something or someone’s just not right.

Our body often knows what our brain is unable to accept or make sense of.

Of late I’ve pondered…a peek at my record…

But muscles have memory…

And I think I already know enough.

  1. I know you wrote this weeks ago, but … wow. This is exactly what I just wrote about today: muscle memory, and how it lives on no matter what brain memory says is and is not true.

    Hope you’re staying well & healthy. It’s been way too long!
