I have so often though about massage. in all honesty I cant handle the thought of that level of touch. I'm pretty sure I couldn't do it dressed. I know I couldn't do it undressed. sad thing is I hurt all the time in my muscles and joints and I know I carry tension there.I think the massage might help but I don't think I will ever know just because there is not enough reason to try it. what times my wife has tried rubbing my shoulders I only have found painful and not at all helpful as the tension only increases with that vulnerability. perhaps i will come to that place in my lifetime who knows.
Towards thee I roll, thou all-destroying but unconquering whale; to the last I grapple with thee; from hell's heart I stab at thee; for hate's sake I spit my last breath at thee. let me then tow to pieces, while still chasing thee, thou damned whale! Thus, I give up the spear!"
