A View from Across the Street

If you haven’t seen the musical “Hamilton,” chances are you know someone who has. What a phenomenon. It just keeps playing and playing—and with good reason. We finally had our turn to see it. Ellie, our performer, had been going on and on about it and was in her...

Stories of Healing Art

Last summer I was taken by a piece of music I first heard on an Apple commercial for a new MacBook Pro. I investigated and discovered it was by a musician in Austin, Texas, named Daniel Johnston and was called “The Story of an Artist.” The critics didn’t necessarily like his music, but I certainly liked that particular piece.

Blessed and Thankful

Blessed and Thankful

I have a terrific colleague who started a mother and baby behavioral health service. Julie is wicked smart. She trained as a nurse, earned a doctorate, and became a midwife and nurse practitioner. She’s so smart, so good, so committed to moms who have experienced behavioral health issues.
