It's been a while since I posted anything last time. Been having somewhat hectic
times at work, and that combined with intensive kung fu training has taken a lot
of my time and energy for weeks and even months as of late. But I'm still here,
well and alive and creating my usual stuff. :)

Or perhaps not as well as I could really be.. A couple of weeks ago I had an
accident in training during some normal warm-up sparring, and last Thursday I
was in a hand surgery. As a result from hitting the focus mitts a bit too
intensively, one tendon on my right hand thumb ripped off together with a small
fragment of bone. Along the surgery both are now anchored back to their places
and I'm recovering well and feeling quite ok. Luckily I'm able to POV regardless
of the situation, and now as I'm on a 2 months sickleave from work, I've got
plenty of time for it too! \o/ :D

Reading about your thumb, I guess you need a bit of that Fungal Tech 
Particle yourself to mend faster. It seems full of potential. Otherwise, 
hitting the mitts a tiny bit less enthusiastically, hmm?

One more for the gallery!

ouch... several years ago i did a number on my scaphoid. rather than 
surgery (pins) i opted for extra long time (12 weeks) in a cast. the 
grip in my right hand has never been the same... had to start mousing on 
my left.

nice composition... like the monochrome

Hehe, I could use a handful of those indeed. :D

But yeah, at least I remember to be even more careful from now on. Even though
been practicing martial arts since 7 years old, never before during the last 30
years I've had anything like this to happen (so far just bruises, sprains, a
couple of concussions etc., easier stuff). Well, not even good luck lasts
forever, it seems, heh.

Or maybe your sparring partner put rocks in those focus mitts? Just as a test,
of course. "To know pain is to know your inner self, young Grasshopper." :-P

The image looks like a gothic painting. Kind of Halloween-like, to my eyes.
Nicely done. I too like the monochromatic look.

Glad to hear that you're on the mend, and with some time off.
