Four years ago, I had my rotator cuff repair on this day. It seems like ages ago. The surgery was simple, an outpatient procedure. The recovery took about three months, but combined with my spinal fusion in November, I never worked again.

Now I sit watching the rain come down and listening to the drops land on metal somewhere.

The gray skies make the spring colors, especially the greens that much brighter.

J’s lunch is packed.i have had my breakfast. I have found that oatmeal made with steel cut oats tastes good cold, with maple syrup and sliced strawberries.

I’m sleepy again.
