Straight from the Shoulder

Have you ever noticed how many sayings there are using the word “shoulder”? Put your shoulder into it. Shoulder the burden. Giving the cold shoulder. Put your shoulder to the wheel. A chip on your shoulder.

There’s a reason why I’m talking about shoulders and I’ll get to it shortly. This photo seems appropriate. It’s one of the men’s suit coats hanging on a tree with no shoulder in it — I love taking the detail shots like this. Now on to my reason for all this talk about shoulders.

I’ve been dealing with a shoulder injury recently. It’s not so serious that I need surgery but it’s darn painful doing certain things. One thing that hurts like the dickens is using the keyboard and mouse on the computer. For that reason, I’m going to be really quite slow in my designing and editing work for the next while. It also means I will be spending far less time anywhere near the computer. I’ll continue to check emails each day and will return as many as possible but the more I’m away from the computer the less I will aggravate my shoulder. If you need to contact me, please send a note through the contact form or email me directly. Thank you for your understanding.

Sorry to hear of your shoulder injury — painful and obviously not good for business. Hope it heals well and fast.
