As the summer has unfolded and the restrictions have loosened with regards to masking and social distancing, a number of people have resumed travel. Many are rushing to book flights to destinations anywhere but where they are currently located. Some brave enough to venture overseas. Trying to catch the window of when both their homeContinue reading “Hurry Up and Wait”
As a physician I am aware that there are many people out there in the world who have life altering conditions that require regular check-ups to ensure their stability. Recently I have had to take a closer look at their perspective. What is it like to anticipate your next appointment where you may or mayContinue reading “Six Months”
A lot of things are changing for me and many others this month of June. We have resident physicians graduating and going on to become independent doctors. Some people are moving on to new job positions, offices, careers, workplaces, or even retirement. The weather, though inconsistent, does feel mainly like summer and with it theContinue reading “Something New”
Today is a beautiful day for those living in my part of the NorthEast. Just stepping outside makes me feel happy. It’s Sunday and there is hope for the upcoming week. I will, however, concede that there are so many things I have to take care of. Fires to put out. Conversations to have. StrategiesContinue reading “Moments”
I won’t lie. This past week has been trying. And that’s saying something in a time where everyone has been under stress for over a year.

A college student with a pre-existing condition hoping to travel abroad in the summer. Her mother, a professional working woman who is an essential worker hoping to have the basic protection as she preparesContinue reading “Three Generations”
The weather has been interesting here in the Northeast. Some days biting cold. Other days the sun is shining and there’s a gentle wind. Someone mentioned we may get snow this week. It’s ok. I have my layers that I put on and remove as needed. I remain agile. I try to enjoy the viewContinue reading “Carry On”
I will confess. Yesterday evening I gave myself a “time out” I was not allowed to engage with others. I was in my room thinking about all I have done. Time to reflect and breathe. I had been working 7 day weeks for a number of weeks in a row and my body was startingContinue reading “Time Out”
This morning I woke up, and as usual, had some thoughts before eventually getting out of bed. So many ideas and plans that could be made into projects and processes. I was tempted to jump up and start typing out my thoughts. And the song that came to me was one from Hamilton (yes, thatContinue reading “Hourglass”
