Last year on this very date, September 24, I broke my hip. Again. I will not get into the details of that incident but if you are curious, you can read about it in this blog post and I have a photo album on flickr as well (warning: this album contains images of my x-rays, some of which I have been told are rather jarring so the faint-hearted may want to stay away).
Anyway, I wanted to underscore this date because, well, it is not everyday that one breaks one’s hip (especially at my age), not to mention twice, and so much has happened since then that it is kind of hard to believe. So I am momentarily dusting the cobwebs off this here blog to reflect on the year this has been.
