We are the music makers, We are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers, And sitting by desolate streams;
World-losers and world-forsakers, On whom the pale moon gleams;
We are the movers and shakers of the world for ever, it seems.

Posted:Ok, i figured how to not get it all spun around itself. Now i just have to wait until the 19th of this month to get my cast removed. I'm pretty sure not being able to move my wrist is inhibiting my progress past accelerations,throws, and basic trapeze moves.
