Return to normal

As I am progressing with my physical therapy, I am learning much about the intricate design of the human foot. My left foot, having been packaged for the last 3 months, is protesting about the sudden activity it is required to engage in; especially the many little tendons and muscles that have been inactive for so long and now have to compensate for part of the foot unable to move at all.

I started to do my PT exercises with too much enthusiasm which backfired as muscles protested, sometimes in unexpected places. That’s how I learned about how everything is connected to everything, foot, knee, hips.

This week I started to explore the commute to my new place of work. I am helped in this by the social navigation app ‘Waze.’ Based on input from 1000s of Wazers it computes the least obstructed way home or work; as a result every trip is different. Waze was celebrated in this month’s Fast Company as one of the top 50 innovators. It certainly helps me get home as fast as possible. My commute has greatly improved now that I work north of Boston.
