Repetitive Gestures

Did you ever notice that sometimes no matter what job you are doing, it requires the same movement?  Scrubbing, rubbing, wiping, waxing, sanding…  Right now the job seems to be a cutting one.  Pruning apple and pear trees, pruning black currant bushes, pruning roses, pruning husband – I mean cutting husband’s hair…

A while back, I had to see a dcotor to get a medical certificate saying I was able-bodied for a job.  While I was there, I mentioned some stiffness in a shoulder.  He said it was something that often happens to 50-year-old housewives due to repetitive gestures and that it wasn’t bad enough to do anything about.  Well – !!! – as I was only 49 at the time, that did not sit well at all…  Plus which I can think of plenty of professions that wear out body parts, not to mention the benefits of preventive medicine.   I haven’t been back to the doctor since.  I took some silica and my shoulder is fine.


About djdfr

Daily life experiences by a Franco-American woman living in the Breton countryside form the basics of this blog. Gardening, watercolour, choral music, food, are some of my interests. I seek to balance the physical, mental and spiritual. I am a free believer praying from the Bible, the Qur’an and The Revelation of Arès. In 1974, with Jesus as the messenger, and in 1977, manifesting as a stick of light, Our Creator spoke directly to a man in Arès, France, named Michel Potay. The message is in the book “The Revelation of Arès”. It is a call for us to change, to practice love, peacemaking, forgiveness, to free ourselves from all prejudice, to develop our spiritual intelligence, the intelligence of the heart.
