Virtuoso hands

Touch is a very important part of human contact.
It helps us feel connected and loved by those around us.
Once in a while when life makes me feel more vexed and victimized than  vibrant I book a full body massage.
There is no better therapy to vent vicious various feelings.
Its a sort of vacation for the mind and soul.
As soon as I walk in the massage room I vaguely feel almost virtuous viewing the various vases of flowers and vials of essential oils made from violets, vanilla and verbena.
My massage therapist has virtuoso hands as she applies the velvety creams and very gently massages each vertebrae.
It somehow also helps lessen my vertigo.
In the end I'm almost in a vegetative mode as she gently reminds me that she now accepts Visa...

 When I win the lottery (ha! ha!) I will have a massage therapist come to my house everyday to give me a massage. What a great way to start the day! (my own chef/nutritionist and personal trainer would be nice too...)  What's one thing you would do for yourself  when you win the lottery?

This post was vividly brought to you  by the letter V.  If you want to join Alaphabe-Thursday just click hereMiss Jenny is waiting for you...dont be late!

  1. Now you are talking....a message every day...yes that would be wonderful. Excellent V post, so well written...I truly look forward to this day of reading everyone's creative thoughts and minds.

  2. smart and thoughtful v post.

  3. Oh I love this picture of the cats ..it is so cute! Wouldn't a massage every morning be so delightful? Happy "V" day!

  4. That cat getting a massage is too cute! Your post is very wonderful! Suffering from Vertigo for the past two weeks I thought of posting on Vertigo! But I wanted to be lighthearted! Come join me soon! Hugs Anne

  5. Your cats crack me up! Our cats "knead" all the time! Unfortunately for us their claws are usually out! LOL!

  6. That is so cute! It really put a smile on my face! I always love stopping by your blog! Have a great night!

  7. I've always said that the world would be a kinder gentler place if everyone had the benefit of a massage at least once a week ... those cats are too cute!

  8. That image of a squirrel giving the another squirrel a massage has made my day.

  9. What a riot! I smiled as I read your creative "V" post because you wonderfully used so many "v" words in your massage story. The animal pictures are adorable and I seriously feel the need to call for a massage.
    I'm not sure what I would do for myself if I won the lottery but I know that I would give my daughter and her family enough money to buy a house and a bigger car.

  10. How did you find those cute pictures of the animals? Too cute! I wish they knew how to massage like that...I would get a few. :-)

  11. I love the cats. I had a massage on my honeymoon. It was wonderful. The scents of the oils ae just as you described them.

  12. Great V post~ your squirrels & cats getting their virtual massages are too cute :-)

  13. What a perfect V post...and one that left me wanting a massage myself!

    (Love the final, live-action pic. heehee)


  14. Super ‘V’ post – so interesting & enjoyable!Would love that massage and the cats are so cute!

    Happy Alphabe-Thursday!


    PS Mine this time is HERE. Hope you can join me!

  15. I've never had a massage but it sounds wonderful. I've decided when I win the lottery I am hiring a house cleaner lol.

  17. Very lovely blog and post...I'm with ya on the massage thing...love the squirrels;-) Peace and blessings

  18. I've only had a massage once, but I must admit that it was pretty awesome :)

  19. When you have a massage...the tension just melts away. I think it is wonderful. YOu have a lovely blog and I adore your blog background!

  20. I need one of these desperately right now. That first photo set the tone. But the animals were a riot!

  21. Omg those pictures are so cute!!! I too would have my own masseuse if I won the lottery!!! Or maybe I should just make my hubby do it more often!!
    Thanks for posting the Follow Friday 40 and Over Blog Hop!

  22. Thank you for coming by and following me. I am already a follower.

  23. I am visiting from FF. I had to become a follower because I really need a massage; but seriously I loved the cats and the squirrel!

  24. I just popped over from Java's Follow Friday 40 and Over. What a great post! I especially loved how you got the word "visa" in there at the end. :D

    But I think, even if I do win the lottery some day, that I'd still prefer to go to a spa for my massages - it seems to be part of the "escaping from real life" thing, when you walk into the spa and that soft music is playing and there's all those lovely aromatherapy smells and they hand you a fluffy robe. Just seems more special than if the massage therapist was to show up on my back door step.

    I'm following you now and look forward to getting to reading more of your posts.

    Happy Friday, Ro

    Then, reading about the massage, gosh, I could just feel how great one would be, I need one, we all need a good one daily!!!

    What would would I do if I won a million dollars? Buy my retreat home in Sedona!

  36. What a totally fun stop on my little journey through Alphabe-Thursday's Letter "V"!

    I cracked up at the graphics and the visa statement.

    Really, really cute!

    Thanks for giving us such a smile this week!


  37. I love how you wrote this post with such verve, vim, and vigor!

  38. That is such a cute post!! I love the little animals giving massages!! My doggie likes them too!! Your blog is so fun, it always makes me smile :)

  39. I LOVE QUEBEC! We just got back from a trip to Montreal, Quebec City and the Charlevoix region. I'm in love with all of Quebec. The people were sooo nice. We were in the subway station in QC looking at a map and looking totally lost (and drenched as it was pouring that day) and a total stranger stopped to ask if we needed help. How nice was that? I definitely want to go back. Without the kids (he, he).
    Oh, and I believe massage should be part of our everyday health plan! If I win the lottery, I'll send you some massage money!

  40. Interesting blog. Your cat is enjoying being massage, a very lucky cat.
