Lisa Hannigan at St Phil's

A truly marvelous gig last Friday. Lisa has a tremendous voice, good songs and some wonderful musicians with her. Some songs were beautifully moving others were amusing (such as safe travels). The audience were extremely attentive and very appreciative. Fionn Regan this week (Thursday) will have to be really special to top that.

My fairly useless right arm

So it's clearly my own stupid fault. But I am really starting to get a bit fed up with it now. I suppose I am learning some things like how much we take for granted and how many things are difficult to do with just one hand. My right hand does actually work but anything I do makes it ache and I have to work around this constricting lump of concrete on it. So ... my writing with my left hand is improving but still looks like that of a 3 year old, my left handed typing is getting faster than it was but is soooo much slower than using both hands, and I have lot more sympathy with people with disabilities.
