A wise woman once told me that the spouses and significant others of massage therapists are lucky folks.
A couple weeks before going back to school, I felt off-center and ID’d my saudade as- the desire to give a massage.
The desire to have that centered, harmonious feeling I get at the end after giving a massage.
I know there will be plenty of times where I’ll be be over-extended and empty at the end of the day, but I am happy to know that I’m headed toward a field that calls to me in that way.
My wife seemed to feel pretty okay with the whole scenario as the recipient of my off-season massage endeavors. Score one for the words of wise women and for my lucky so & so.
