So Plan A for the first post of this week was to start exploring Inform 7 as an interactive fiction writing program. I was going to poke through my latest book and post about it on Friday. Instead I stayed up until the wee hours reading my book. Don’t you love it when that happens?

This week’s read is definitely one chalked up for the human potential side of things and not so much business or games. It sounds a bit woowoo, but by Grabthar’s Hammer, it has helped me immensely already. It may be the best seven bucks I’ve ever spent.

For a long time I’ve had back pain focused in my shoulders (the trapezius for those of you who are knowledgeable about such things). Also some not infrequent rotator cuff issues. I’ve always chalked it up to structural issues as I am a top-heavy kind of gal. And obviously the pain got worse with stress. A few days ago it was excruciating, like knife-in-the-back excruciating. Fortunately I happened upon this post by Richard Nikoley at Free The Animal. In his summary of the year past he posted links to his cure seeking for severe shoulder pain he was in. After playing follow the links, I ended up dropping seven bucks for the Kindle edition of Healing Back Pain: The Mind-Body Connection. I am not kidding when I say that the pain in my back was gone the very next day.
