On becoming left-handed

On Friday 23rd April I had an accident with my bandsaw, the main tool of my trade. I have cut through tendons on the middle two fingers of my right hand.
I was tremendously impressed by the care I have received and the number and expertise of the people involved so far.
I will be out of normal action for a while. I am already intrigued by how many normal things are difficult - socks, shoelaces (impossible), cutting bread. I am managing to write very slowly. I am looking forward to some left-handed painting. I am having great fun with voice recognition software to write on the computer. I am determined to make the most of it.
