Close, but no cigar

Happy November! What happened to October's post, you ask? I created at least 9 ("NINE TIMES") posts in my head during October; it's just that none of them made it to the interwebs. Sorry you missed them. They were heartfelt, thought-provoking, and entertaining.

 Have you ever been thankful for your thumbs? Over the past weeks, I've become painfully aware of my thumbs. Particularly my left thumb. If you know me, then you know that my fingers and thumbs play--quite literally--a crucial part in my livelihood, my art, my passion.

I spent the early part of this school year recovering from a pool-related injury, which I incurred via a humiliating, slapstick series of events, kinda like this:

Because of this injury, I had to stop playing piano for quite a while. I'm better now, but my thumb continues to be a problem. It's not the end of the world, it's not earth-shattering. In the grand scheme of life, it's certainly unimportant on all scales. But it's a reminder that I need to be grateful for what I CAN do, while I can do it.
 Thank you, universe, for my gifts. 
  Here's to you.
