Running for the Finish Line

I feel like I’m always writing about how crazy life is right now. I think it’s because everyone’s lives are crazy right now, for a different mix of very good reasons. I’ve been physically caught up in our hospital’s COVID-19 surge planning, literally, as our […]

Sunday Morning Nature Walk

I just couldn’t do ZOOM church this morning. Again. Sigh. I miss our church and our friends, but our weekdays are so hectic, what with a crush of exhausting ZOOM meetings (the kids too, as they are both doing full-remote school), coordinating my office days […]

I was thrilled to host physician and author Peter Grinspoon and his dog Benji! (This episode originally aired on TV in September, but it took me until now to get my YouTube act together.) Peter is incredibly open about his history of opioid use disorder, […]
