Tree in the forest

People have long wondered if a falling tree makes a sound when it falls in the forest and no one is there. That is like my pondering about foot massages. 

Hold on. It isn't that big of a leap, once I explain. This past week, as I have had nearly daily foot massages, as I wrote about here, I find my thoughts returning to the forest and the falling trees. Does one enjoy a massage to the same extent if you fall asleep?

I am sure that the long term benefit to the body is the same, asleep or awake. I may take more enjoyment in the actual receiving of the foot massage than the long term benefits. This being the case if I fall asleep I miss that enjoyment.  (Plus the observation that the quality of the massage decreases when the recipient is snoozing. 

So,  cousins - trees and foot massages.

  1. Kristi, this is funny, but interesting. Don't you wonder how our minds work, to make such connections? I guess you still love the good feet feelings, no matter what.
