I'm so sorry to leave you high, dry & blogless lately. My hand is improving in the most infuriatingly infinitesimal, microscopic increments, with long plateaus in between. I can now lift a larger glass of tea, swim several laps as opposed to a couple (although still with a modified, careful stroke), & probably type a little more than this paragraph. But that doesn't mean I want to push it. Caution is the name of the game here. That said, I shall now disappear for a few more days. The show is up, though, & I daresay (is that really supposed to be one word?) going to see that will give you a much bigger & better dosage of moi than any blog entry yet.
