time and a bottle


Just playing around with some simple objects and seeing what I can create with one arm/hand. Maybe one day when I can type again I’ll expand on my time and thoughts about and with the bottle.

Sorry about the absence, recovery from my shoulder repair is underway and of course I underestimated the impact. I did get to see the pictures of the doctors handy work yesterday and the shoulder pad bandage removed. I was impressed with the before and after shots. And after PT starts in a week or so I hope to be feeling as good as they looked in a few months.

Till then I’m adapting. And I’m gaining perspective, a glimpse into some difficulties that our handicapped are faced with on a permanent basis. It gives me a profound appreciation for the healthy and working limbs I have.

Might be a good while that heavy ass Nikon is going to be sitting on that tripod. I know I can’t hold and operate with one hand with that 18-300 on it.

I did take the old Kodak digital out and grabbed a frame on the way home from doctors yesterday leaving Catonsville. That I can manage one handed.

So I hope to be here on a regular basis again. Creating what I can from home for the most part. Just catching up also on a few days behind in the reader. And I love it all.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.

  1. I hope you are back to good health quickly!

  2. Hang in there, Mike! The recovery road is daunting, but (from what my family members who have had orthopaedic surgery tell me!) worth it when you get past the surgery pain and realize the day to day pain you lived with is gone. Hope you stopped at Jennings or Ship’s Cafe for lunch while there!

    • thank you Kathy, nice reminder to get to Jennings, ate at Ship’s in the summer if my memory is correct. we like Catonsville Gourmet also. looking forward to feeling better.
