Portland, Oregon's Cancer Survivorship and Bodywork Zine by Compassion Arts PDX, LLC
Breath is a rhythm
We gotta say in.
The bounce in our step
Is chosen in the brain.
An understanding of the continuous myofascial network of the human body brings a knowing down to three hundred microns,
Including the trebechulae of bone.
Intelligent, responsive latticework
Remodeling upon demand
With smooth muscle like contractility
In dewdrops of glycogen
Of connective tissue
The myofascial network
Our fascia is
To mechanical forces
Between muscle and bone.
Between muscle and muscle
A jaunt along the riverside with the pups in the Vibram FiveFinger Spydiron. Minimalist shoes, varied terrain and a sensate life… A few tidbits towards happiness…. How does your fascia play a role in movement possibilities? Wiggle your toes, Portland!
Our nervous system orchestrating all these bones
Keeping all these funny, calcified sticks
And oddly shapen pebbles
Moving and grooving
Holding the depth of our emotion
Etched in our walk, our posture
Our breath, our gesture.
All size scales.
From macro to micro.
From gross to subtle.
Fellow folk of planet earth.
You are amazing.
