An Introduction

This blog is unlike anything I’ve ever done. I’m a physician, and you can find all you want to know about my professional life¬†here. My life has been defined by science, medicine, and cold hard facts. I always have struggled with creative and personal writing, and I was never one who made much time for self-awareness and introspection. But as a physician, I’m an educator as well as a life-long learner. And over the past few years, partly due to some personal changes, I’ve been drawn to writing, and to sharing my experiences and thoughts. It’s still quite foreign to me, but I’m giving it a try.

Here you will find those thoughts. Some of them are quite random. However you will notice some themes – healing, the search for balance and serenity, and community. And lots of gardening, which is where I find much of my balance and serenity these days.

I welcome your comments.
