I have come to realize that blogging forces me to filter everything I do through a different, noncomplacent lens. Now as I pass my day as a physician, citizen, parent, child, wife I find infinite connections to write about. It forces me to SEE my patients-their lives, their struggles, their grief through an entirely new filter-and I really think it has made me a better physician and person.
Looking at my statistics (yes, I just figured out how to do this) I am humbled and amazed in some months this blog has more than 500 views! The map view shows visitors from four continents and always the surprise at what brings the most viewers to this space.
Many of life's journeys start on one road and detour to another. I searched for a way to bring the outstanding and deserving voices of women neurosurgeons to a wider audience and found a new vehicle for inner discovery. Thanks for all those who join me (past and future) on this wild ride.
