Harriet

Fried Chicken & Philosophy

If you are Black, like me, or a person of color (you call you what you want), before you see the latest Brad Pitt movie, see Harriet. I’m an “Ole Joe” and I like movies. I’ve seen scores and scores of them. I’ve never been more moved than I was when I watched Harriet. I could give you a movie critic version of why I thought the movie was great. I could even point out the most poignant scenes. I could tell you why I thought the supporting cast was wonderful. I’m not going to do that. Honestly and earnestly, I implore you to see Harriet.

Maybe later I’ll jump on the bandwagon that will develop demanding Cynthia Erivo be considered for an Academy Award. I’ll jump on it again when she doesn’t win or, more impossibly, when she isn’t even nominated. I’ll scream foul and racism…

Homemade Coleslaw

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 c. mayonnaise
  • 1/4 c. apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. dijon mustard
  • 2 tsp. granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp. celery seed
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 large head green cabbage, thinly sliced
  • 3 large carrots, grated
  • 2 medium golden beets (optional)

DIRECTIONS

Whisk together mayonnaise, vinegar, dijon mustard, sugar, and celery seed. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add cabbage and carrots and mix to thoroughly combine. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve.

ps I didn’t have any mustard so I made my own with 1 tsp dry mustard, 1 tsp white vinegar and 1 tsp water. You should let it sit for 15 minutes before use.

I like beets and had some on hand, so I tossed them in. If you do, you should add a bit more seasonings all the way around.

It takes more than a village to raise a child in today's world. The world is more than flat or round or sun and moon. It's also the village on the other side of the river. The objects in the sky are different from that view. Community Greens, griot-like, tells a story. I invite you to share my view. - Chuck Vasser

A Gurney Seat

Patient-centered care should exist in all factions of medicine. We need to listen to the patients to find out what they want, and to the providers who probably know best how to make this happen.

Fear

“It is said that before entering the sea a river trembles with fear.

She looks back at the path she has traveled, from the peaks of the mountains, the long winding road crossing forests and villages.

And in front of her, she sees an ocean so vast, that to enter there seems nothing more than to disappear forever.

But there is no other way.
The river can not go back.

Nobody can go back. To go back is impossible in existence.

The river needs to take the risk of entering the ocean
because only then will fear disappear, because that’s where the river will know it’s not about disappearing into the ocean, but of becoming the ocean.” – Khalil Gibran
