Note added January 7, 2017: I was recovering from a head injury at the time of this post and living alone to minimize sensory and emotional input. Writing, including blogs, was an important part of my rehabilitation. In retrospect, it was a smart strategy that aided my recovery. I leave the post up because it may have value to those trying to understand the complex subject of traumatic brain injury recovery.
Lori, Josh and Arielle came for the weekend. It was wonderful to have company. We made pizza and played Scrabble. I am otherwise “grounded” until a replacement tire comes via UPS. The unexplained cracks in the my fairly new front tire could cause a dangerous blow-out. A blow-out of a front tire almost always results in a crash; not a risk I would take.
