|Bright pashminas: the cure for the common sling|
I rarely post videos, but I thought we all deserved a little escapism today. My friend David O'Donnell took this video the day I smashed myself up. Look at all that soft, glittering powder and blue sky. My favorite thing about this video is probably David's cheerful Australian-lilting Woohoo! commentary.

My shoulder is still painful and visibly deformed (oh, I love being able to say that, I've only ever been visibly deformed once before, when I chopped off the top of my finger in a door). On the plus side, now I match Will, who has the bony, permanently messed up shoulder look of the devout paddler, and he makes it look really good.
Exercise and standing with good posture have been tough since this day, which is driving me batshit, and I wasted all the pain killers, so I'm starting to think this whole injury situation was not a great deal for me. As long as dream-team trainer Ren can help me get things in order and save the climbing season ahead....I still say it's worth it. I mean, just look at this day....
