“Ring my bell”
I get the bell jar comparison now. I didn’t when I read The Bell Jar over a decade ago. But I had gotten to the point where I was in the bell jar and I felt it lifted off me today, tonight really. It was when I exercised with weights for 29 short minutes. That’s all it took. The ironic thing is that I was using the bell jar as a reason not to exercise. It really is a physical cause. A mental problem with a physical solution. I advise never to slough off the simple suggestion. It’s often the one that really works. It’s often better than meds anytime for anything. Shock worked for Sylvia; simple weights worked for me. I am blessed.
And because of this post, I am expanding my blog theme beyond gigs and classes. It’s all part of the big picture of my life as a bellydancer anyway.
