The attending asked me if I would speak with him. I uncrossed my legs in the uncomfortable office chair and threw my feet back into shoes without tying them. Then, I shuffled out of the resident workroom and toward a small table with a wilting poinsettia as the centerpiece.Continue reading “On senioritis and communication”
Michael Caron! Michael is a 40yo father, coach, and motivator. I met Michael while at a yoga teacher training and we have kept in touch ever since. I chose this time to interview him because of the recent birth of his son, Stadler, who was 1mo old at the time.
We dive deep into one of the hardest months of his life, with the death of a life-long friend as a result of brain cancer and the loss of his matriarch grandmother. He read the eulogy at both services and I’m sure the stories will leave an impression on you, like they did me.
Additionally during this energizing conversation, we discuss his formative years through a semester at sea, the wonder of being a new father while being present for a stepdaughter, and his philosophy on leadership and self-development.
I hope you enjoy! 🙂Continue reading “Michael Caron On Death [REPOST]”

I have known that this day was coming.
Tomorrow, I need to wake up, poop the dog, grab some firewood, change a diaper, kiss my partner, and then head out to the hospital for morning rounds. I will likely be home after lunch, but this month will stimulate growth and challenge me to remain present with both patients and my family.Continue reading “On the end of an era (or Interview Season: a post-mortem)”
Ayden LeRoux! Ayden is a 29yo artist, writer, and BRCA1+ human. I’ve known Ayden since my grade school days where we won a swing dancing competition together and we haven’t spoken for almost half a decade, this interview served a chance to catch up and see where life has taken us. During this conversation, we discuss the intertwining of science and magic to predict her future health, Land Art installations as spirituality, and how a partner changes our plans for death.
I hope you enjoy 🙂Continue reading “Ayden LeRoux On Death [REPOST]”
I don’t want to write very much this week. I feel very acutely that I only have one week, seven days, or one hundred and sixty eight hours left of my paternity leave.Continue reading “On short reflections”
