The Log of Fragmentary Pleasures

Waiting between Patients

The time between patients can be so short I barely have enough time to hit “send” on the prescriptions page. Other time, there’s a long lull, like there is right now. This is when I start wondering if I’m making a difference in people’s lives. I don’t think about that when I’m in the zone…

I finally got around to putting away the Christmas tree and decorations. I tend to celebrate till Epiphany but it’s always sad for me to put them away. The living room feels empty now. Maybe I’ll put up the tree again in July, though. Speaking of Christmas in July, I’ve started the sequel to my…

Midweek Post

The first week of the year is halfway over. If you’re still doing your fitness resolution, congratulate yourself, because so many people didn’t even start! Push through those reps, eat those fruits, run that extra kilometer! It’ll be worth it when this time next year you look in the mirror and realize it’s no longer…

It’s Time to get Back and be Persistent

My word of the year for 2023 will be “persistent.” I have started to turn around my life these past few months, from work to health, when for a long time I couldn’t take the first step. I didn’t want to drive to the gym after work. I didn’t want to clean the kitchen. I…

Relaxation: What is it? Part 1

I’ve always found it difficult to relax. Sure, I can lay back and doze off, but taking a nap is both cheating and unfulfilling since I’m unconscious during it. I’ve never been one to meditate either, since my mind never stops moving. What’s bothersome is that the movement is aimless, not a useful kind of…

Flexibility

I didn’t think of myself as uptight. I didn’t think of myself as perfectionist. I can point to my living space as proof against it: I don’t care about crooked pictures, crumbs on the floor, or dust on the decor. But as I look around the apartment, I see that the imperfections are skin deep,…

Hyperconquerors

In the eternal game of good versus evil, Jesus has curb stomped satan. Our side is so ahead, we are playing from a place of victory—we have the guaranteed win because this late in the game, there’s no way the enemy could ever score enough to catch up. The enemy just tries to do as…

Becoming a Real Author

Since I was a child, I dreamed of writing and publishing a book. I wanted to tell a story that would entertain, edify, and be memorable for decades. I had many false starts throughout the years, from my first attempt at a novel (which I still work on, by the way) to segues into the…

The Peppermint Dog Cover Reveal

I’m so happy to share this with my blog followers. I’ve been working on this work for a while now and I’m proud to say I am taking preorders! Names and addresses for now, but the price will be about $25 each (including S&H)! It will soon be live on Amazon and I’ll post a…

It’s Been a While

I’ve had some changes in life recently: book about to be published, new apartment, more exercise, better diet. There’s been a lot of good going on, yet my mind gravitates toward the negative. For instance, I have a job interview in a few weeks for what on the surface seems like a better job. But…
