One time years ago I had a med student come through who said he’d never met anyone who worked and played as hard as I did, and that he needed to go back to the Medical Center and get some rest. I’ve been like this for a long time.
My agent says art should have the symmetry of threes, and I find that is right. My current projects include the novel”Acquisition Syndrome” subtitled “From Healing Art to Business,” and a children’s mandolin book that explores light and sound. The tentative title is “Grandpa’s Mandolin Book”and it is in honor of our grandchild due this fall. In a few weeks I plan to start a mandolin duet CD with Darin Aldridge.
This weekend I caught up on medical journals, and I’m still a doc, so it a busy, busy, busy, life. My blog posts may be a bit shorter for a while until I catch up, but stick with me. I’m here to stay.
Someone asked why I write. The short answer is because in it I find the renewal of youth. At an age where a lot of folks think they have seen it all and no wonder is left as a writer each day is as exploration as new as when a kid sticks his toes in the ocean for the first time. When I was a child Mama said I couldn’t stand to be bored for a minute. As a long past middle-aged Doc (my young readers fuss if I say I’m old) writing has saved me from that fate.
Mama always was right.
