Four of my top five talent themes have been in over drive lately. I’ve been intensely apply learner, input, analytical, and intellection to a situation that has come in my life that is now reached a point that it’s going to impact what I am doing here for a while. You see,I’ve been dealing with some significant pain for several months now and experiencing limited movement. The doc has been treating me through other means and finally chose to do an MRI to see what was going on. Hence, the discovery of the torn rotator cuff. Consequently, I’ve been spending quite a bit of time learning about the muscle group that makes up the rotator cuff, the way the shoulder moves and works (or at least how it’s supposed to), and what exactly is the best way to heal from injury. Like I said, I’ve been using my talents — learner, input, analytical, and intellection!

So, I beg your indulgence and forgiveness in advance. If you don’t hear from me for a little while it’s because I’m about to undergo shoulder surgery to get things repaired. Based on what I’ve learned and how I think it’s all going to affect me, I could be in too much pain, too focused on recovery, and too pre-occupied with just getting by at work and in life to spend much time here.

So, forgive me, if you will for a brief absence.
