poured out before bed
OK, so it’s a little melancholy (perhaps a lot melancholy), but everybody needs a song to play while they ponder the big things in life. Right now, as we fast approach the dates of my internal medicine OSCE and shelf exams, I’m a tad bit melancholy, knowing much of my time in the coming days will be spend with nose planted firmly in a set of good, but somewhat overwhelming books. I’m also and more appropriately melancholy because one of my favorite patients passed away yesterday – it was peaceful, it was prepared for and expected, but it was all too soon. So I’ll wallow, just for a little bit – before I snap out of it and swim in that tide of opportunity and fulfillment which runs just before me.
Oh, and as I swim – I’ll need to be quite focused. I’ll be taking a blog hiatus for the next week so as to keep nose and grindstone firmly opposed. Enjoy the respite from my “mullings” and “whine,” say one for me if you think of it and are so inclined, and have a fabulous week.
