Ribs Break

It’s one of those moments we all have when we realise that, actually, we are mere mortals.. hmm no, that sounds terrible I’m always aware of that. What I mean is I have broken one of my ribs and it hurts like buggery.

How did I break it and why am I telling you?

The first bit of that is easy, I fell while on a boat, the decks were slippery after me having cleaned them and, well, I bloody slipped. I’ve been helping a friend out with his business Falmouth Boat Hire, which is a long story in itself (I’ll tell you about another time), but yes I fell over about 5 feet and my ribs (the ones towards the back) took the impact, and DOINK one broke… ouch…

These things do fix in motion apparently. It reminds me of when I broke a collar bone playing rugby.It was equally as painful and the world becomes equally as slow. To be honest I suppose part of me enjoys that slowness, the forced paced that simply take control. It’s impossible to move quickly due to the pain, but with slow movement it’s manageable.

I’m sure I was going to be much more philosophical about my break but it seems not. I am glad however I have rediscovered my blog and that you are reading it, we used to have a lot of fun around here. So maybe that’s it, maybe the point of me sharing this is just that it’s an opportune moment to re-ignite my blog, so we get to know each other again.

Could be eh?

      Thanks a lot Joanne! x

  • If this means more Hambly blogging bring on the pain! No of course I don’t wish that but I’d welcome a re-ignition of the thoughts and vibes that started this all off for me in the first place. Question, analysis and reason to a fast moving evolving space. It is interesting to to follow the ebb and flow of  digital consciousness. Real life always wins out in the end. During this recuperation I’ll listen out for your musings. Rest up and mend. CJ

      Ah that’s nice CJ, most kind, and I do seem to be getting the itch to become more verbose again. It often takes a jolt, something big to have a change of mind doesn’t it? I guess this is the same for social media adoption or let’s say effective advertising or PR. When a jolt occurs in the collective mind, we then see a movement formed.
