To my friend Robin, with gratitude for re-introducing me to Clarissa Pinkola Estes CPE. I have even recently still resisted listening to her song (message), until now. I have been using the pool at the house we rent and call home presently, to rehabilitate the vestiges of my motor-scooter accident in the Philippines last year in March. I think the injury to my left arm is related to the sciatic pain that showed up first in my right bottom and leg, but then went away and came back with vengeance on my left side.
After trying different treatments, chiro, acupuncture, yoga, massage, what is working beyond the benefits where I plateaued with acupuncture, is wading in the pool, using a floatation belt, fins, pool weights, and fins, not all at the same time, but for hour long sessions, everyday with little exception. I believe my diet will help too, as it will reverse any atherosclerosis (clogging of the arteries and capilaries that impact all areas of the body and can impinge circulation and nerves along the lower spinal column.
Anyway, today I listened to this wonderful interview between CPE and Tammy Simon and it was divine. The title for the interview is Untie the Strong Woman. The impact was profoundly moving, inspiring, liberating. I just had to share, and to say thank you.
