No Pain

Yesterday morning I emerged from sleep slowly, lying on my back without moving, warm and quiet.  As I reached for consciousness, I began to realize that I felt no pain.  There was no throbbing in my toe, no aching in my knee, no knot in my thigh, not even a gurgle in my stomach.  I couldn’t feel the tension in my jaw or the stiffness in my neck.  Joints and muscles were all at rest.  I lay there for a few moments, wallowing in this unexpected gift before sitting up and triggering the aches and pains of the day.  But having reached this restorative state once, I know it exists, and I will find it again.
