Sometimes life can cramp your style. Ten days ago I fractured my right shoulder in a bicycle accident, courtesy of some streetcar tracks downtown. (I am not alone in doing this; it is entertaining, if a bit gruesome, to Google "streetcar tracks bicycle accident San Francisco". At least I still have my legs.)
Anyway, it's not particularly painful, and as you can see I am able to type--but the arm isn't useful at the moment and everything takes a lot longer to do. My commute is now twenty minutes longer each way. That's about the margin of time in which I have been operating this blog. I won't have the time to post until my arm is functioning again, which will be in about a month and a half.
In the meantime I'll be collecting ideas for future blog topics and I'll be happy to respond to any comments made on existing posts. Enjoy your holiday season and I'll see you again in 2013.
