Lightbulb Bow Arm Freeze

I just wanted to bring this topic up because it seems I/We/Us often hear or read the term..."Bow Arm Freeze"...where many of us have experienced it as well as associate it to be?....

"The Precursor To Target Panic"

And as I established and acquired one of the most defined sight pictures I've seen from behind the sightless window of my recurve bow and began to exploit it to the extreme...(as I ventured even deeper into string walking with a high anchor)...I was having a grand time for myself until "it" happened...

"Bow Arm Freeze"

where my arrows point was a good foot under my spot and it seemed my bow arm was locked up solid where my heart began fluttering and my mind racing with the fear that my worst nightmare was about to re-occur...TP!...and for the 2nd time in one lifetime.

and that's when I had a shimmering moment of enlightenment as I thought?..

"Wait just a minute here!...cause this is stupid!"

and what I figured for being "stupid" was simply this...

I'm not supposed to be moving my freaking bow arm!

Where a slight bend at the waist raised my next shot right on target with relaxed authority!

And "Bow Arm Freeze" accompanies the boogeyman in the dark recesses of my mind...IOW's?..."Non-Existent"

Just figured I'd share that...might help someone else.
