As I begin to build this blog, I wonder what shape it will take, what content it will include, and what messages it will ultimately speak.  Essays on public health topics?  Anecdotes from clinical encounters?  Poetry?  Travelogue?  Daily journal entries?  Maybe all of these things.  I suppose I simply want a space in which to put into words the myriad thoughts swirling in my mind; a chance to make sense of the constant noise of society; a way to weave my own insubstantial thread in this giant yarn ball of our interconnected world.  If sharing in this journey helps you to navigate your own paths, then by all means, please feel free to join in and enjoy some healthy discourse.  Thanks for being here!
