Sudden Change!

Tomorrow, Tuesday, I am going to be transferred from BMC to Spaulding Rehab. Please come to visit me in my new situation, once I'm settled!

Thanks to all who came out to Friday's screening. It was wonderful to see so many old friends, students, and professors. And it was a special treat to hear Michael Tully speak about "Septien," which played very well to an appreciative audience.

Of course, being at BU was not without some bittersweet moments, especially in getting around campus in my wheelchair: a new perspective on familiar territory. I have to be honest here: before I left Boston for Montana, I halfheartedly felt, almost as a vow, that I wouldn't set foot on campus again; and now that I don't have a foot to set, that vow turns out to be one of life's bitter ironies, along the "be careful what you wish for, because it may just happen" line. On the whole, though, I was glad to be back, and especially glad to see so many familiar faces.

Cinematheque Event

Tomorrow, April 6th, at 7 PM, there will be a screening of my friend Michael Tully's movie "Septien" at the BU George Sherman Union auditorium (second floor). The screening is in my honor, and there will be a chance, if you wish, to donate money to my cause. (A website has been set up to accept donations at: And if you don't wish, please come to see a neat independent movie anyway. (It was Michael who led the charge for me to see "Beasts of the Southern Wild" when I was in Salt Lake City.)

In other news, I am supposed to get my arm prostheses back today from refitting; and my legs are almost, finally, healed from their wounds, which means that perhaps leg prostheses won't be far behind.
