shattered but not broken

what an interesting few days.  first - many, many thanks for the kind comments and emails.  i'm a lucky guy with no lack of support.

doc says collarbone might heal w/o surgery - all those chunks would make a big knot.  it might not though, and would take a long time if it does work.  so - my choice is an upgrade, pure ti baby.  a plate and screws puts it all back together.

it looks like i'm out for at least a month - from work and riding.  that's what i'm told anyway...but ya know my style by now...

in any case, for at least 2 weeks i can't do much that involves movement, so i'll be getting cerebral.  the grey matter is long overdue for some feeding anyway.

any suggestions as to cerebral topics?
