I’m in the process of rewriting or deleting every single thing I’ve posted to this blog since 2010. It will likely to take me a long time, especially tracking down all the photos that no longer show up. I’m a one-man band here with a full-time job that isn’t beekeeping or writing about beekeeping (though I would take a huge pay cut to do this for a living). I’m aiming for sometime in 2019 to get back to business as usual on this blog, whatever that is. It might not be until December 31st in 2019, but sometime in 2019, I’ll be be back.
I will update this post from time to time as I continue to plough through it all.
Two years ago today, my little Honda Fit got smacked big time by a pick-up truck, by a driver who it seems was texting on their phone at the time, and I got a big ol’ concussion out of it. It left me with light and sound sensitivity that kept me in bed with the blinds closed for six months, unable to watch TV or look at any kind of screen, listen to music, read a book, or socialize with friends. You could say I lived in a cave for six months, and when I crawled out of it, some of my friends had kids, Donald Trump was president, the world was surreal. I had nine months of physiotherapy, nine months of not being able to work or do anything that resembled ordinary life, including taking care of my bees. That’s why I haven’t been around for a while.
I’d say I’m about 95% back to normal now. The other 5% was transmogrified into something other worldly that I might write a book about some day, just to get it off my mind. But suffice it to say that today, I’m okay.
I kept a low profile after my accident, and I liked it so much that I don’t think it’ll change any time soon. Don’t take it personally if I don’t return your calls just yet or sign onto any beekeeping associations or other beekeeping groups. None of that is for me right now, but I’ll be around. See ya.
