As artists, we, too, need the benefit of an “empty mind.” Our own creative insights and realizations become more tangible and workable when we clear away the clutter of fear, negativity, apathy, and all... more

Incredibly, a recent review of those articles leads to the inevitable and unfortunate conclusion that with only minor changes for updating statistics they could have been written yesterday. Never in my many ye... more

  • Do the Right Thing: A Surgeon's Approach to Life

    by Arthur Lauretano
