the chair

Lying on your back, has to be when you are at your most vulnerable. Suddenly all your sense of bravado, feeling of security, and strength disappears and all you are left with is the knowledge that you really have no control over what happens. Maybe we should make this a part of our daily life. Spend at least 15 minutes of each day lying flat on the ground staring up, imagining different scenarios. The realization of no control brings with it a certain acceptance and therefore relaxed surrender. Even the metal tools in my dentist’s hand coming towards me ominously, did very little to ruffle my composure, and i survived an outing in the chair, with if not flying colours, then definitely trying-to-take-off colours.
