I think we've all experienced Blinking Cursor Syndrome.  When you have something to write, want to write, and all you can do is look at the cursor on the screen, hoping that the words will magically appear.  But they don't.

Well, that's what this blog has become for me over the last few months.  I would say that I've just been too busy to write anything, but that's not true.  It doesn't take that long to write a post, whether it's about medicine or anything else.  I think the problem is that I always want to be profound, interesting, and engaging.  Which is admirable... but some days just don't have that in them.  And I feel like this blog is supposed to be about me and my life in residency, which should involve a whole lot of writing about actually being a doctor because thats how I spend most of my time.  But so many of my posts this year have been about other stuff that I stopped writing all together because I felt like it wasn't an accurate portrayal of what my life looks like. 

So, here's the deal.

I'm just going to write something every day.  About something.  And post it.  The more I write, the easier it is to write.  So I'm going to ban the blinking cursor and just put some words on the screen.  Maybe a picture or two... 

Bear with me and hopefully something good will pop up now and then.

Peace out,

Dude, something good just DID happen! Most of life happens in the silent spaces. If we didn't have the silent spaces, we wouldn't know we had the music. Good to hear from you!
