I read today’s WEGO Health Activist Writer’s Month Challenge post as a couple of different tasks. The first is to write about burnout and what it feels like and/or the second is to write about what gets you OUT of the pit of despair, when nothing is going your way.

I finished a very fascinating book over Spring Break called the Longevity Project–Surprising Discoveries for Health and Long Life from the Landmark EIGHT-DECADE STUDY by Howard S. Friedman and Leslie R. Martin. In 1921, a Stanford University psychologist, Dr. Lewis Terman, began a study of around 1500 gifted school children, looking at the sources of intellectual […]
What a week! Frankly, I need some levity in this contribution to WEGO’s Health Activist Writer’s Month Challenge. Here are a couple of vintage photos of myself taken on Easter Sunday, 1970.

I’m not saying the technician was physically cold, her personality was cold, almost to the point of rudeness when I walked into her domain. No small talk from her, only a very brief explanation of what was happening and what […]
I’m continuing to participate in WEGO’s Health Activist Writer’s Month Challenge. Today’s prompt is to toast our favorite social network. I have a thing for bridges.
