Seamus Heaney Finally Wins T. S. Eliot Prize

Too ill to attend ceremony.

***

Due to a mishap involving kitchen shears and a misplaced finger, I won't be making any further posts for a few days.

The finger's still here and attached, just thoroughly wrapped in a huge bandage that makes typing a tad difficult. It's not really painful, just awkward.

coincidentally i took off a nice chunk of my thumb while slicing potatoes with a mandolin a couple weeks ago. a shocking experience indeed! my sympathies.

Hope the finger is healing, Hedgie, first of all for you, and second, because you'll have to write soon:-)
tons of wishes.

Thanks, everyone. The finger's recovering nicely, but it'll be another week or so before I'm back to typing with it.
