The price of anything is the amount of life you exchange for it.  ~Henry David Thoreau

Hello there! Allow me to re-introduce myself….I’m, well, ummmmm, I don’t really know who I am right now.

I’ve been missing in action lately, physically and mentally. I can be found in a classroom, in an operating room, in my car driving to/from either of those two things, or at work. And that pretty much sums up the last 9 months of my existence. I am happy and I am not and sometimes I love it and sometimes I hate it. I am tired and burned out and there are days (lots of days, if I am being honest) that I question why I am doing all of this. My car is wearing down from the travels, my mind is wearing down from the stress, and my body is wearing down from it all.

But you know what? There was this one day, where I held a heart in my hand. And the day that I looked into the inside of an eye. And was mesmerized by the pearlescent sheen of a tendon. And put my finger on an artery and felt the heartbeat. And assisted in a C-section. And squinted my eyes to see the body’s smallest bone resting on my fingertip.

And so I hope that the exchange rate is pretty good in this little journey….
