Okay, right off the bat, this is not to do with my lack of updates on the site. I have been working very
sporadically on some miscellaneous artistic ephemera all over the place lately, but I just haven't had a lot of creative drive like I used to, something I am trying to remedy.
This is about a genuine incident where I came close to serious injury. I was, in fact, involved in a traffic collision on my motorcycle.
This was my first such incident, and I honestly now consider myself baptised into the motorcycling community, having had my first major accident.
Luckily, me and the family all seem to have an uncanny knack for experiencing incredibly dangerous accidents that always seem to turn out far better than they could have. As such, I'm largely alright, and aside from a few bruises, a 6-hour late night hospital stay and injured pride, I came out of it largely unscathed. My bike is a bit banged up and will probably cost a bit to patch up, but it does still run, much as I am mourning its scars.
I guess I just have good fortune to thank that I was stationary, the car was braking as it hit me, and that the people inside were kind enough to come to my aid. I can safely say that it is an experience that will never truly leave me, but it is certainly one I hope never to to repeat. Hey, what doesn't kill you and all that, right?
Thank you all for reading. I'll try to work through the aches to get some more material for you, my loyal watchers, because someone needs to get some enjoyment out of this incident.
lastly, please wear safety gear when performing a dangerous activity
. It could save your life, or, at the very least, prevent serious injury.
