Lefty Trauma

After a few days of low grade pain, I finally went to a doctor today after my left hand swelled up… I got a series of X-rays, which didn’t show any bone damage… It looks like I tore a tendon in my wrist – under my thumb – working some BJJ against a 350lb training partner last Wed. night… Going to have to wear a brace for a while, and modify my training as I heal… I won’t know which tendon, or how bad for about a week, until the swelling goes down and I can get and MRI…

So, how is your day going? 😉

Since I seem to be spending the majority of my time on social media sites posting stuff, I thought I’d link those posts here on my personal site as well…
Good article on problem solving various types of “injuries.”

This is a followup to my last arti­cle (Training Related Injuries – Is it Serious, or Just a Tweak?) where we discussed if the diffi­cul­ties you are expe­ri­enc­ing in move­ment are seri­ous enough to warrant going to a physician.

Today, let’s go into further detail about:

  • How partic­u­lar injuries and condi­tions occur
  • What you can do to relieve them
Loved this from Jim Wendler: “Believe in yourself and be a motherf*cker – if you don’t no one else will. Have love in your heart and an axe in your hand. Hug and swing discriminately.” http://asp.elitefts.net/qa/default.asp?qid=157346&tid

Reading this, I find myself in good company: http://brainz.org/50-most-brilliant-atheists-all-time/

“Atheism is generating quite a lot of attention these days. Prominent atheists are getting the word out about their views in increasing numbers and generating lots of public debate on the proper place of religion in governments and societies in the modern world. And now more than ever, atheists have been able to network together and join forces because of the Internet.”

After the Pause

Busy, busy, busy… As always…

I consciously took some time off from the blog.

No inspiration to write, a lot of other things on my plate: travel, family commitments, that kind of thing.

Hopefully I am back at it now. 🙂

In the next few weeks I am going to be making some changes to the site, as well as updating with new posts.

I hope this quick update finds you all well and doing some good in the world.

Until next time!

Ciao for now!

Lost in Place


I just realized I haven’t updated my site in over a month! Where did the time go?

Let’s see… Quick catch up…

I am feeling 100% again, fully recovered from my bout of whooping cough. Work is running smoothly, though a bit slow… Life with the family is great… In fact my wonderful wife and I just got back from an eight day trip to the big island of Hawaii! It was easily the best vacation I’ve ever taken!

Training is on pace and where I want it to be.

Life is good!

In fact the only area that I feel needs extra attention is in my writing/drawing/painting… I have been VERY lax lately getting any work time, or work done… So that is where I am going to focus (along with balancing all the rest) for the next little while…

As to the blog… I have spent most of the last month+ micro-blogging on Facebook and Twitter. I am finding micro-blogging to fit in with my time and attention span better right now… But I will make an attempt to update this site more often…

In fact I will try and have some pictures from our Hawaiian trip up in the next few days…

I hope all is well in your world!
