A semi-daily chronicle of my life as a musician, a family man, and a citizen of Oregon.

Take this broken wing and learn to fly

OK - here's the deal...  After trying the "Just take 'er easy" method of treatment since I fell jogging a couple of weeks ago without great results I went ahead and headed in to the doctor's office yesterday to find out why my arm was still hurting me so bad.  A couple of x-rays later and I had my answer - it turns out that I broke my elbow.

So now I have a gigantic temporary cast on my arm that holds my thumb in place, meaning that on my right hand I have no opposable thumb.  I like to imagine that I'm like a bear.  ROWR.

All in all not a great start to the summer - definitely puts a cramp in my canoeing and maybe even camping.  But please bear with as my posts are a little shorter for the next few weeks.

I'll see if I can get a copy of the x-ray to post.  Wouldn't it be cool to see my innards?

Why is your blog called Spoken in Sanskrit?

I've used that name for my "band" (of which I'm the sole member" for a few years now. I've been connecting it to all of the creative stuff I do.

No opposable thumbs? All those Richard Dawkins books and yet now you're devolving.

Hope it heals well.
