Citrus Fruit by José Luis Hernández Zurdo
This morning, I woke up and entered several dreams into my dream journal. I remember thinking during the night after having and remembering one dream after another, "Man, I've had so many dreams! It's still dark...when is the night going to end?!?!?"
I wasn't really complaining. I was enjoying my dream time after having a little bit of a dream drought of not remembering dreams for several nights previously. This morning after journaling my dreams, I wondered about what was different about yesterday than any other days.
What came to mind right away was martial arts class that morning. I was practicing self-defense techniques and I pulled a back muscle during one of the forms -- that muscle right next to the shoulder blade that's hard to reach. For the rest of the day, it nagged at me: more of an annoyance than an actual injury.
A teacher of mine suggested that a deficiency of calcium and magnesium might be possible players in my muscle pull, and suggested that I take calcium lactate and rub magnesium lotion into the skin for the body to absorb. I did as instructed, went about my normal activities for the day, and went to sleep at a decent hour.
