Roadtrip Archives

In the summer of 2003, Charlotte and I decided to take a trip across the country by rental car (why a rental? Don't ask--it's complicated, dull, and annoying.), stopping at various friends along the way, seeing the sights, and culminating in our annual visit to the Burningman festival in Nevada. This is the diary we kept along the way.

Sirius- The Massage

Monday at breakfast I decided that I would get Ken to give me a massage. This is another incident of expectations and experiences being worlds apart. I really thought it would be an exquisite massage, combined with acupressure points in some way. Afterwards I would feel relaxed and slightly tingly. Yum. I had spent the last week under a great deal of stress, with a concentration of sexual energy which wouldn't dissipate, despite how diligent the attempts. The session lasted twice the amount of time I had expected. I spent the bulk of the time, feeling as if my skin were flooded with energy to the point of bursting. I kept having the feeling that it would feel really good to make incisions in each finger tip, so that the energy would explode outward. My body is arched -- I have two points of contact with the table: my head and my ankles. Meanwhile, Ken has my hand and is asking me questions. Weeping, I tell him what I want, why I am here at Sirius and keep answering the questions. By the time this session ends, my experiences prior to Sirius seem to fall into place, and I have a feeling of clarity, I am quivering but calm and centered. I drink two liters of fluids and am so wobbly that I can not stand. It takes almost two days to fully regain my gross motor skills. I would do it again.
