Dear Readers,

I apologize for the lack of postings recently. I’ve been recovering from eye surgery. The surgeon fixed a hole — macular hole — in the retina of my right eye.

For the recovery, I’ve had to spend most of the day with my face down.

Face down is not new for me, of course — we dull men typcially look at our shoes when we talk with someone.

Do you know what an extroverted dull man is? He’s someone who looks are your shoes instea of his own shows when he’s talking to you.

Ever seen a macular hole? Here’s what mine looked like:

Is this more information than you need/want?
