My frankly remarkable balancing act began in late January when I got a call offering me a part in a play. I wasn’t even driving yet, after the injury I sustained on Schweitzer Mountain on Christmas Eve.

At least, I can edit. I can’t do dishes, but I can edit. Of all the various things I initially thought I wouldn’t be able to do with a broken right arm, edit videos was at the top of the list. I wondered, for the first ten days, most of which were spent in acute […]
