Dear Earth…

I’m really sorry about all this. I’ve been distracted with my own stuff and haven’t been in touch very much recently, but I know you’re having a hard time, too. My last trip to Mexico was something of a life-saver, though, so thank you for that. I’d forgotten how much I need that kind of […]

Medical bullying: is your doctor making you sicker?

Visit any busy doctor’s waiting room and check out the vibe.

US reality check: the president is NOT the problem

Why is President Obama being attacked from all sides, after such a positive start to his presidency? Why has he failed to make the difference that he initially seemed so capable of making? His apparent failure is part of an ongoing cycle that is never going to change unless we realize what’s really driving the […]

It’s for the birds…

We could learn a thing or two from birds—the feathered variety. They’re up at the crack of dawn every day, singing their little hearts out, and never worrying about where the next worm is coming from. They’re not moody and they don’t get depressed when it’s raining. (I’ve never seen a bird sulk—have you?) They […]
