trees and sky

Yesterday evening was a time of petty trauma.
First I seriously cut my left thumb. I mean BAD. I have very sharp knives, was chopping garlic, and it was nasty. But I also have amazingly fast reflexes and no sooner had the knife sliced through my thumbnail than my hand was over my head and firmly clenced in a towel. I have not taken a good look at it, having bandaged it up too quickly. So I did not clean it out but it was bleeding so much it is probably ok.
Then my phone line went dead. My landline. No internet, no email, no phone, at a time that is perhaps the busiest in years. It took a great deal of detective work until I discovered the cause, but in fixing it I was not nice to my throbbing thumb.
It was difficult to sleep last night. I had to keep my thumb up and it hurt a lot. Today it feels painful but I think I will be ok. Good thing I don't have to play piano in these upcoming gigs.
