Barbara M.

So happy to see you back! We are taking our first visit to Florence (because you loved it so, and described it so evocatively!) in a few months. Can't wait to see all the places you described, and drink the coffee at places that are not Starbucks! (Although having moved from Bergen County, NJ to Deerfield, NH..... it is 20 miles to the nearest Starbucks.)

I lost track of you during the long thumb injury hiatus..... truly sympathized, as after retiring in 2005 I decided to go for a long time goal, and learn a musical instrument. Unfortunately, the harp is not a good choice for elderly thumbs, and I spent 6 months waiting for the tendonitis in my left thumb to recede.... meanwhile, I taught myself to knit without pushing with that thumb. I never realized how much I needed my thumb until then.... pulling up pants, grasping a jug of milk, etc.... all very difficult! Since then, I sold the harp and pay A LOT more attention to minor aches and twinges, knowing that they could be the precursor of a repetitive stress injury that seriously cramps my style. I still miss the harp, though.... and I'm glad I found a dear friend with intact thumbs to sell it to.... could not have borne to sell it to someone who would not cherish it the way I had.
