Welcome to Random Thoughts from a Restless Mind!

Why a blog? Well, it’s rather simple and rather complex, just like most of this stuff I guess. I enjoy the act of writing, exercising my “writing muscle” as it were. It’s fun to work at words. To put them together in a way that makes sense, but also in a way that pleases a reader. I am a victim of my upbringing (and you can expect to hear more about that as time goes on!), and I can’t escape my Liberal Arts education. My career as an eye surgeon does not afford me many opportunities for continued exploration of the Humanities, and I’m hoping that RTRM will allow me to travel those paths once again.

Why now? This is the complex part. Do you ever get an idea, something in your mind that has no place to go, and you can’t let it be until you find its place? Happens to me all the time. As a matter of fact it’s getting kinda crowded in the Restless Mind with a lifetime of thoughts, ideas, inklings and epiphanies all circling with no place to land. Perhaps if they find a home here they will take flight in a new, different way, clearing some airspace behind.

So, what’ll I write about? Likely stuff I know a little something about, at least in the beginning. Things like Eyes, Eyecare, and Eye Surgery. Vision and “the Vision Thing”. Parenting, marriage, and family. Sports, competition, coaching, and my beloved Crossfit. Soul Patches. I’ve spent a lot of time teaching myself about economics and learning about things like medical economics and Healthcare policy–I imagine I’ll have stuff to say about all of those things. And don’t forget, I’m a surgeon after all. We surgeons are pretty sure we know something about pretty much EVERYTHING!

Who’s going to read all of this? Frankly, I have no idea. I think I’m going to enjoy the process of writing this even if my only readers share my genome. But I hope a few other folks might stumble across this space as they amble through cyberspace, a random stop in their restless meanderings. If so, I hope they enjoy the visit. Perhaps something here will spark a new thought in a visitor, and perhaps he or she will share that thought with me and anyone else who happens to be here. I hope so.

Welcome the the Random Thoughts from a Restless Mind! Don’t be a stranger…
