For anyone who has followed 'A Journey With Frodo', I wanted to let you know that I've had to shelve it for the time being. This is for several reasons but mainly because the trouble I have with my shoulder means I can't sit at my pc for long stretches like I used to. I have to restrict myself to several short sessions which is really not conducive to working on something like 'Journey'. I don't want to say I'm abandoning it altogether -that makes me too sad because I was really looking forward to completing it and having the whole thing to look back on. But - I started this in 2006 and my progress has been so slow that I think it would probably be another seven years before I complete it!! The situation with my shoulder is that, having had it x-rayed, I was told that I do have arthritis in the joint. I'd already had a steroid injection which did nothing to help so I was sent to a physiotherapist. She informed me that I also have frozen shoulder. She gave me some exercises to do and also some literature about acupuncture which I think I'll try. However, she did say that
this condition does usually cure itself eventually although it can take a couple of years. So, if ever my shoulder does improve considerably, I might find myself able to really get to grips with 'Journey' again and get it done!! I hope so.
I am still as fascinated and enchanted by Elijah's journey with Frodo as I've ever been, as well as Elijah's post-Frodo career. I may sometimes pluck a moment from his LOTR days to post about so that I don't miss it too much!!
