Handling Lessons

I took a painkiller on an empty stomach before wading into a wet city. It's a good thing to have a pleasant numbness growing in my stomach as I wait for a seat at a crowded restauarant's table. Cooking I miss from before I hurt my shoulder but even now sling free I haven't attempted that again. In my memory I handle cooking like I handle many things - moving fast and keeping as much in the air as possible. That my ability to catch falling objects is impaired by injury feels something like a life lesson.

Hi, I'm Justin Hall and this here is a personal web site I've used to chronicle my time on earth since 1994. The content on the front page is relatively recent; if you search through the archives, you'll find old pieces of Justin. Some folks have indexed my doings on Wikipedia.
