I'm wearing a soft cast right now to heal inflamed tendons in my right ankle. I'm supposed to stay off my feet as much as possible. That means I'm not getting in much in the way of shop time. Instead, I'm using the time for my other interests, writing and photography.
I'm finishing up my latest book, Choosing and Using Handplanes, a guide intended for the newer user of handplanes. It will be published by Amazon as a paperback and also in a Kindle edition. I've described some of the process I've been going through on my writing blog.
And, I'm working my way through literally thousands of photographs in my files. Some of these I'm selling as art prints. Others I'm posing on my photography blog and on Facebook.
So I'm occupied doing things I love to do. But when the cast comes off my foot, look out--it'll be back to the woodshop to finish up some projects that are waiting to be completed and start some new ones.
