After Action

There's a moment we rarely get to see in entertainment, specifically in action movies.

There a moment after a extended period of high intensity activity. This is not a gym high or an endorphin rush, though that does happen.

This is the moment after all that, when the knots in your back and pelvis loosen. When muscles go from ice to vapor and your head wobbles off your neck like a tether ball. It feels like falling.

That's something you don't see in action movies very much, and sometimes I think we should.
