While I was in Columbus, new found friend and I decided to go for a hike! I'd been meaning to check out Hocking Hill for a while now and it was just perfect timing. We had a day that included a 2 hour hike, 5 miles, and lots of picture. Because a picture says a … Continue reading Hocking Hill State Park

I know I posted in December "Choosing a medical specialty" (here is a link to that page https://ardentlyincandescent.com/2017/12/31/choosing-a-medical-specialty/), but I never told you what I chose and why.

A few years ago, during one of our big class sessions in medical school, we were asked to name our Heroes. I had never truly thought of who I looked up to, outside of religion. And I never raised my hand. Many years later as I compiled a list of those I love, through their … Continue reading Who is your hero?
I took a class a while ago, called the Healer's Art Course, which was surprising not what I expected. I thought it was to help us learn the art of medicine, however, it was about bringing humanity back into medicine.

It was a very easy read and if anyone is looking for something to help … Continue reading Mindfulness: The Art of Living
