Brains intrigue me.
They are "plastic"
and they have the ability
to learn or re-learn
or even shift their
if another area
has been injured.
And yet some brain injuries
do not heal
as expected.
Expectations regarding
the healing of brain tissue
are never clear
or concise.
Bones heal in a precise
time period.
Skin and organs
with the proper treatments
heal on a certain schedule.
Brains do not.

I think about this;
as J drinks a beer and
makes chocolate chip cookies,
and I read a book about
brain surgeons,
while I sample
the cookie dough.
