Right-Handed Annapolitan

Whenever we go traveling, my husband Peter usually judges the success of our journey by our safe arrival home. This time, a journey to California to look at colleges with our daughter Alex was punctuated by an unfortunate trip, stumble, and fall. The result–a break to a bone in my left wrist. I’m typing this blog with one hand, my right hand. I never realized before how painful, with a capital P a broken bone can be, so painful that even with pain meds, the ache and throbbing is still keenly felt. The only relief is distraction.
So what is going on in Annapolis and the Mid-Shore this beautiful Easter weekend to distract? Well in addition to all the Easter egg hunts and special Sunday brunches there are a number of gallery openings in Chestertown along with the opening of a photography exhibit at the gallery at Quiet Waters Park, that features orchids captured on film by Ashley Edmunds Cooke. But best of all will be all the cherry blossoms and daffodils we can enjoy along with mostly sunny fair weather. So enjoy a walk, bicycle, or cruise on the Bay. Although I only have use of one hand, I can still get out and walk!
