So as not to hijack the fiddle-cleaning, callous-sanding thread I posted on the other day, I started a new thread.

Hi everyone. I am back (sort of). I have had quite the hiatus from fiddling.

First was the shoulder problem. When I couldn't lift my arm anymore I found out that I had a shoulder impingement. Quite a bit of PT later I am better but have resigned myself to living with near constant shoulder pain.

Then I began the long drawn out process of getting divorced and moving to a different town. I am still waiting for the divorce to finalize. I moved out with not much more than my personal effects and the patio furniture to furnish my new home, but with the help and charity of my extended family I am doing OK.

I don't have a computer, so you won't see me posting very often. I still haven't figured out how to post videos from a tablet either. I did bring Madame with me, but she needs a visit to the luthier as soon as I can scrape up the money.

Those of you who remember me from before might recall that Madame has machine heads. Well, those puppies need some maintenance. My use of pliers for occasional tuning hasn't helped. I haven't played much through all of the turmoil but I am hoping when the divorce is final and the dust has settled that I can get into a better routine that includes regular practice.

In the meantime, I am still lurking in the corners and reading up on posts.

Hello there..

So very very truly happy to see you.  I have missed your smiling face and wit.  🙂

Sorry about the troubles.  I am glad you are able to post.  What a bummer about the shoulder issues.

I am tickled that you have Madame with you and hope you can resume playing.  Will look forward to you posts when you are able.

I have had to move out before with only my personal stuff and begin again.... it was hard... but it was better.  That was many years ago.  Hang in there... I am thankful for extended family and friends for you.

🙂

Hey D, great to see you back! We've missed you. I often wondered what became of @dionysia. Sorry to hear of your troubles. Hopefully, getting back to fiddling and being among friends here will help a little.

Good to see you back on the FM forums, dionysia!   Here's hoping that things will go much nicer and smoother for you from here on.

Thank you Terry. I will probably still be fiddlin' the blues for a while, but there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
