Fragile Bones

I apologize to regular readers for my unusual 10-day silence. I was putting all my mental energy into finishing Naked at Our Age: Talking Out Loud about Senior Sex, which is due to Seal Press August 1. I should have given more thought to my physical actions, though, because last Sunday in a lapse of attention I tripped, slammed into the floor arm-and-shoulder first, and have multiple fractures in the humerus head (shoulder end of the upper arm bone). I have osteoporosis, otherwise I probably would have bounced back with no more than painful bruises.

I don't want you to forget about how valuable this blog about sex & aging is while I recuperate, so I've enlisted the help of some of my favorite bloggers and authors whose contributions will start appearing in a matter of minutes. Thank you for staying with me -- enjoy the guests.

  1. I can relate to the fragile bone issue as I too have osteoporosis. I hope that you heal quickly and I love your blog.
