My life has a superb cast but I can't figure out the plot.

Busted Bones & SuperFoods


Good thing I updated my blog on March 5th, because on March 6th I slipped on some ice going down a steep driveway and landed awkwardly and very un-Michelle Kwan-like on my left wrist, fracturing it. Apparently it was a bad ice day for a lot of folks around here, as the ER was quite busy with broken bones, back injuries and car accidents from the ice... and one poor old guy who'd lopped off two of his fingers while using a table saw to cut wood for the woodstove. (I got this info from his daughter, and it begs the question, why would someone use a table saw to cut up firewood? And also reminds me that someone always has it worse than I do!)

So here I am in this cast, having gotten over the worst of my discomfort and claustrophobic desire to chew the damn thing off my arm, but still not liking it one bit, and finding one-handed typing terribly tedious and one-handed living both limiting and fatiguing. Needless to say, Spring cleaning and remodeling ground to a halt (though today I plan to
attempt resuming my gingerbread spandrel painting.) I'm definitely catching up on my reading, at least! And I will find out on Monday if I'll need surgery. I've been walking the fine line between doing all that I can to avoid it while trying to get away with using my left hand (well, fingers, really) as much as possible. Hope I managed to strike that balance!

I do hope to post again soon.. have a couple of fun things coming up!

Meanwhile, here's a great article I found quite worth sharing...

There is still strong in our society the belief
that animals and the natural world have value
only insofar as they can be converted into revenue.
That nature is a commodity.
And that the American dream is one of unlimited consumption.
There are many of us, on the other hand,
who believe that animals and the natural world
have value by virtue of being alive.
That Nature is a community to which we belong
and to which we owe our lives.
And that the deeper American dream is one of unlimited compassion.

~John Robbins, "The Food Revolution"
