No Arm, No Voice

I have been offline for ten days or so because I had a little owie in my arm that turned out to be some pretty major surgery.  While I was recuperating and emerged from a percocet-induced haze, it occurred to me that I was really lacking an outlet for ideas, expressed in social media.

I use this blog, Media Bullseye and Boston Hardball to express what happens to me on my mind that particular day or in that particular moment.  Being robbed, temporarily, of the use of my right arm made me think how important user generated content (the user being ME) had become to me.  I had a lot to say, and the only one to hear it was my new dog, Prince.  And he just cocks his head and walks off.

So while I can’t type for long, this avoiding a typical diabtribe, it’s nice to be back in the swing with the ability to express myself using social media.  I missed it.

    Hope you feel better soon–take it slow and easy.

  4. Wow…I just figured you were busy, you know, what with the day job and teaching and all.

    Hope you feel better soon. You’ve been missed!
