Today at acupuncture, the new acupuncturist at the clinic did my needles. She had a slight accent. Maybe German. She wanted to know which "nodes" in my legs hurt. It took me a minute to figure out she meant "muscles." And before she applied the needles to the most tender areas of my feet, she said "This will feel sensational."
Of course it will.
Laying on the acupuncture table I may have fallen asleep. I know my eyes were closed. I might have been awake. I'm not sure. I saw a small point of blue. And it kept getting bigger, kept filling more of the space behind my eyelids. I don't know what it was. I don't know why it was. It's never been there before. But I know it was good. It was, somehow, a comfort.
Maybe even sensational.
