We’re pretty tired from working on the lawn today. After we finished I had just enough energy to get a picture of the peonies opening up in the garden. Lawn care services we have hired in the past have finished mowing, trimming, and blowing in about 10 minutes. We took about 3 hours. I was …

Today marks the first day in which I could keep a few more snapshots then I have been using my new DSLR camera. Again, Robins seem to pose for me. There are different explanations for why they seem so tame. One is that they’ve learned to follow around large animals that tear up the earth, …

Hope you’re enjoying the Memorial Day weekend. OK, the temperature is now up to 97 degrees and with the heat index it’s 108. That’s hot enough for me. Despite the heat, we got outside today. Sena did a lot of watering. I went out to practice using my new DSLR camera. I’ve heard that some …

I’m gradually working on unwrapping my identity from my work in medicine and psychiatry. I saw this article by Helen Dennis, “Finding self-acceptance on retirement.” It was posted originally in 2012 and updated in 2017 in The Los Angeles Daily News. She offered advice to a physician who had recently retired and admitted to her, “I …
