Reattached Fingers

Today I’m grateful that there was a surgeon capable of reattaching my fingertips that I cut off in 1991. They’re 90% functional — I can play guitar and pick up small objects but I have limited feeling and no movement in one joint — which is just amazing when I think about it. I’m much more careful around woodworking blades since that day!

New Study Desk

Today I’m grateful to have finally finished the full-length built-in desk in our study. Plenty of room for three workstations, and the stained surface came out great and matches the floor. The last part today was cable management — no clutter and power boards on the floor. That’s going to make me happy every day!

School Holidays with Sisters

Today I’m grateful that I got to stay with my sisters during school holidays when I was a kid. They spoiled me and gave me access to experiences and places I would never have seen otherwise. I always looked forward to staying with them, my anxieties subsided at their front door. This photo is proof: a surprise shot taken by my sister Bronwen as I was really getting into the air guitar in 1982. This is a photo of a relaxed and care-free me.
