48 hours

48 hours with no Internet. No email. No blogging. That’s because my building’s connection somehow broke down and still isn’t repaired. So I apologize for the 48 hours of silence. By odd coincidence I watched 40 Days and 40 Nights on Friday, a rapidly forgettable movie about the travails of an oversexed young man who for Lent makes a pact with himself to be celibate for — you guessed it — 40 days and 40 nights. Being without the Internet for 40 hours was upsetting enough, but 40 days, now that utterly unthinkable. How quickly we come to be dependent on our little gadgets and inventions….

I’m still a little under the weather, with a minor cold and a painful bout of tendonitis of the right shoulder. It got so bad yesterday that I went to the hospital where they took x-rays and told me I need to put my arm in a sling, which I’m supposed to be wearing all the time. Just one more little headache….

I’ll try to get back into form very soon. Please stand by.
