Of all the interrelations, it is the ones that molded her most that keep lingering in physical memory. It’s the body that remembers too, said she, did you know that, asked she. That people who have been traumatized, can relive their trauma in their body. The skin has some sort of memory, I guess, otherwise there would be no need to raise babies the way we do. It is the fact that there is something yummie on the skin of newborn rats, that makes the mother lick them. This licking again stimulates something in the baby rat. I remember telling her that I would moisturize her with Nivea, before I was called mirr
but I never mentioned any licking.
