Good Life

It’s Saturday morning. I have my list of errands to run and assignments to complete. In the background I have music playing on a random rotation, care of Pandora. (Helps ensure I am in a good frame of mind). Morning thank you to God. Done. Quick text chat with my mom and sibs. Done. HalfContinue reading “Good Life”

Three Generations

On one Saturday afternoon, three women in three different locations, went to get their vaccination against the virus that causes COVID-19. 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”

Carry On

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”

Time Out

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”

Beauty after the Storm

I’m looking outside my window. There was a snow storm over the weekend. During the storm it was extremely cold and visibility was poor. Those who had to venture out for work, appointments and commitments had to do so carefully. There were a number of mishaps and delays throughout the storm. Some people were leftContinue reading “Beauty after the Storm”


As a physician, I get a lot of questions about various health care topics both within and outside my clinical setting. They usually range from issues relating to colds, rashes, surgical options, the latest diet and so forth. With the advent of the Covid19 pandemic- all the questions are pretty much in the same vein.Continue reading “Vaccine”

Reach Out

This morning I was going about my schedule for today. Pray, exercise, decaf, shower, dress up, click open laptops, start the “to do list”. Then I got a message that the sister of my schoolmate/friend had died. Mind you, we were last together almost 30 years ago (medical school). This is actually when and whereContinue reading “Reach Out”

The Sound of Silence

“Hello darkness, my old friendI’ve come to talk with you againBecause a vision softly creepingLeft its seeds while I was sleepingAnd the vision that was planted in my brainStill remainsWithin the sound of silence” This tune is actually the ringtone for my phone. I love the haunting melody, it doesn’t make me sad, just remindsContinue reading “The Sound of Silence”


It’s been an interesting week to say the least. Someone posted a meme on social media with the Joker (as 2020) showing the clown from It (as 2021) around, helping him navigate his new workplace (the world). I actually chuckled a bit for that one. Anyway- the common theme that came across during this pastContinue reading “Sacrifice”
