The Death of a Dream

Dw.cdrWe go to the doctor when we’re sick. So, when the doctor’s sick, where does he go?

Thanks to the Affordable Health Care Act, the future for traditional, general practice family physicians is sick. Realistically for these independent hometown health care providers, there is no future. There’s no longer any long term future for this way of health care. Someday this “sickness” will be terminal.

Many experts and politicians are

Birdwatching

Dw.cdrI’m going to tweet you now, and it’s not about the Internet. Today starts a new focus for me. Today I’m officially starting to Baby-Bird Watch.

Baseball fans of the world champion St. Louis Cardinals know what I’m talking about. Today Cardinal pitchers and catchers report to Jupiter, FL, to conduct their first spring training workouts slated for tomorrow. The full squad reports next Monday. Usually spring training is noteworthy

A Kiss is Just a Kiss

Dw.cdrValentine’s Day approaches. So, it’s time to reconsider the pucker power of a kiss.

Kisses are sweet things when they come spontaneously from the heart. Or, yes, those sweet things wrapped in silver tin foil by Hershey’s®. But 20 years ago (January 1994) I wrote the headline and article on this newspaper’s sports pages that read: “Kiss …ick!

It’s a story worth repeating.

The Dragons of Tina-Avalon held a

Indecision in the Marketplace

Dw.cdrIndecision is human nature. Many of us are miserable, mired in habits of indecision with no relief from the endless decision-making we call life. Even no decision is a decision …agreed?

Perhaps baseball’s zany Casey Stengel said it best, as quoted in the Ken Burns television series Baseball – “I’ve made up my mind both ways.”

But today technology has an answer for everything.

Internet’s business giant Amazon has patented

Make Your Surprise the Right Size

Dw.cdrThe dust has (finally) settled from a personal episode I hope to never repeat.

A couple of weeks ago my wife, Liz, turned 60 and I am soon to follow later in this year. For some unexplained reason, I felt compelled to mark her milestone with plans I hoped would pleasantly surprise. But like most of my best plans, the surprise turned out to be on me.

The plan seemed

I’m Bored, But I’ll Try Not to Snore

Dw.cdrNow, after Christmas amid the snow and cold here, ‘tis the season to be …bored.

Double digit wind chill readings mean confinement indoors for the intelligent. And yet, intelligence has little to do with cabin fever. It’s an equal opportunity emotion.

Boredom is a part of life. We aren’t made to be totally anything, especially interesting. Maybe we never realize how boring life is until someone asks what you like

You Are Missed, Even If Home Alone

Dw.cdr“Home Alone” wasn’t just a movie this Christmas past. It was reality for one family member suffering so much neck pain that traveling to the family dinner just wasn’t an option.

Sickness, of course, is a common topic during holiday conversation lulls (as well as any other time of the year). No doubt you can think of several fighting colds who watched Christmas over a growing pile of tissues or

A Scene Not Easily Seen

Dw.cdrBy the time you read this, Christmas Day may be a memory. So, what was your favorite Christmas scene this year? I’ve been blessed with so many choices I can’t quite decide.

A pair of hands. Music is such a big part of Christmas. We expect the caroling to crescendo as the days get closer to Christ’s birthday. So an early Christmas carol performed without the vocalist comes to mind

Stage Right

Dw.cdrIt started with “stage right.” No, actually it started long before that.

We couldn’t figure out how to lace the baby’s car seat securely in our vehicle. So, we rethought, retraced, and reloaded into the other car. Then we left– safe and snug as four adults and a baby can be in a compact SUV.

The night previous was the baby’s big first birthday celebration, a celebration lasted beyond the
