these are really interesting posts because I feel much more across the "bridge" of medical education
but I do feel like this blog, and my wonderful medical community has helped me to hold onto the stories
to remember that my patients don't exist in a vacuum, my colleagues don't exist in a vacuum,
and even I don't exist in a vacuum.
there's always more to the story if you're willing to look/ask/listen a bit deeper.

a quote from Dr. Alita Anderson about the process of medical education:
when you find yourself on the other side of that bridge
you're part of the medical culture.
while you get there,
I want you to hold on to every bit of your old self
your now self
I want you to remember the stories of these patients.
my tribe came to visit me and we hiked in Acadia
