Having a health crisis can really change one’s outlook on life. I seem to have come down with a case of Bell’s palsy. It may last for a few weeks, or possibly for months. This certainly puts things in a new perspective, and my real priorities are now becoming foregrounded and revalued. I can still write, type, eat, talk, move around. But I have to approach some of these activities differently. I recently read that George Clooney, Amy Goodman, and Pierce Brosnan have had Bell’s palsy — so, hey; I’m in good company.

I suspect I’ll probably be blogging more, and writing more, in general — although in smaller increments. We’ll see where this leads…
