Is it Stars Aligning or?

Hello from Danville, I am in the town where I do the great majority of my medical appointments waiting on a lunch appointment. I have noted from time to time that I have lived my life with not much of a strict sense of where or why. Suffice it to say there was no grandContinue reading “Is it Stars Aligning or?”

A Wonderful Job and Some Amazing Students

Hello from my little office on the acre. Many times it seems we have a tendency to only verbalize the negativity we see and feel. I am not sure if it some makes us feel better or if we believe people will somehow feel sorry for us, but I think we are profoundly mistaken onContinue reading “A Wonderful Job and Some Amazing Students”

What Does It Take?

Hello from about 35,000 feet and above the Colorado/Utah border, perhaps a little west. It has been some time since I’ve made a cross-country trek, either by air or land; in fact, it is the closest I’ve been to Placerville since shortly following Lydia’s passing. I believe that is the longest stretch of time awayContinue reading “What Does It Take?”

I do not want a do-over

Hello from the corner of my room, I am sitting in the chair in my room, which is a comfortable and thoughtful place in my home. It is a sort of safe place too. I have learned that I am a person who needs a quiet and safe place. I am not sure I haveContinue reading “I do not want a do-over”

Learning Begins Again

Hello from my corner of the office, It always seems to be the case that when I believe, or begin to believe, I have in some shape or fashion figured out what my life is about, the fastball of fate whizzes by my ear. Not only did I miss it, I am not sure IContinue reading “Learning Begins Again”

A Mid-Summer’s Night in a Dream

Hello on an early Wednesday  morning, It has been some time since I posted, and if you know me that means that I need to get some order to my life. It could also be that I am trying to do too much. Someone who has known me 2/3 of my life, albeit from aContinue reading “A Mid-Summer’s Night in a Dream”

So Much More Than a Memory

Good early morning, It seems to be that no matter the time I choose to call it a day, I will find myself awake at 2:30 a.m., pondering more than Trump’s tweets. Perhaps that is because he’ll soon be up composing the latest 140 character blasphemy or alt reality, while casting accusations of fakery atContinue reading “So Much More Than a Memory”

SGS – Short Once Again

Hello from the GI/Nutrional Center at Geisinger, I am currently waiting for a recopying of paperwork that I managed to misplace before I even got out of the hospital today. I am not sure how I managed that, but I did. I have been diagnosed with something called Short Gut (or Bowel) Syndrome, which is aContinue reading “SGS – Short Once Again”

Show me the Way

Hello from my upstairs, It has been a day of reflection and a day of feeling I am too far away from where I  believe  I should be. As I was telling my colleague, Mark, this morning as we shared our thoughts about Dan and Mike, or Drs. Riordan and Levy, a bishop might have demanded the resignationContinue reading “Show me the Way”

Feeling Better . . . And Feeling Blessed

Hello from the Acre, It is amazing what technology does; it matters not whether we are talking social media and our daily obsession or whether we are referring to what happens in a dctor’s office, an X-ray room, or a same-day surgical suite. This past week I have been a willing participant in all ofContinue reading “Feeling Better . . . And Feeling Blessed”
