Urban Spartan

So, yesterday I started the Spartan Life. That’s what I am calling my next chapter. You already know my health has forced me to swing towards better eating. Not that I was ever a fried food and gravy type, but there was and is always better. 

Michael Taylor introduced me to  TeamSpartanSpades in the Bronx and, if the creek don’t rise, I’ll do my first Spartan Race next year. In the mean time, I want to get my giddy-up on and build basic run miles. Look for future Spartan posts.

Dies The Swan

The woods decay, the woods decay and fall, 
The vapours weep their burthen to the ground, 
Man comes and tills the field and lies beneath, 
And after many a summer dies the swan.

From Tithonus by Alfred, Lord Tennyson

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

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
