To write is to stretch tired, cramped limbs and see what I can still do.
My brain fires electricity to parts long deprived of spark.
Awakened, a fire in my belly greater than any adrenaline rush pushes my fingers to type.
Now, here, I take a first breath and break the surface of the water I did not know was weighing me down.

    The water is cold at first. You’ll warm up to it though. It’s so true, your analogy. Use it or lose it. Breaks can be refreshing too, refilling inspiration once you get past the first few ficlys. You’ll be back up to speed in no time I know it.

    This touches that fringe where the biology of the body and the mind connect, maybe overlap, one in the same.
