Long Distance, Calling The Universe

Last week, the CEO of a global top dental manufacturing company came under fire, mostly from my colleagues, for sharing his conscience. So every morning, on walking through the office door, I check-in on what’s up with the Universe. And it’s cool because the Universe sends me emails…as in “Tut: A note from the Universe…

Buon Natale

Cousin Leslie, a professional writer, wanted some info for a piece she was writing all about a Sicilian Christmas done SoCal style. So over the past weekend, I savored a brief escape from charts, bills, the property manager, and my troubled and troublesome right nostril. I took advantage of the chance to sit back and…

Choices

Most recently, I learned (something I really already knew) the stuff that scares me the most is most likely the stuff I should be doing. So yesterday, while I was reflecting about how I used to fantasize about getting even with dental school instructors who really didn’t recognize a creative genius when they saw one,…

Prolly

And I can’t help it; when I read “prolly” my left eyebrow starts twitching sort of like Dirty Harry. So it’s been 5-weeks since the total Anchor Steam on tap-type nosebleed meeting breaker landed me in Kaiser with a Tampon secured way up my right nostril. But after a couple of lesser flare-ups, I can…

Big Night In A Desert Town

And don’t tell anyone…but it’s not so bad having three moms who are all way cooler than you are. Last night, three of my co-workers, friends, and adopted daughters in my own mind treated me to an amazing night on the town. And true we were still celebrating yet another of my birthdays and the…

Not Really A Hater But…

…it still felt good being back, serving and working with friends and family, making dentistry fun and… breathing freely though both sides. So a few days ago they pulled something called a “rocket balloon” straight outa my nose over at Kaiser. And after six days of ballooning around the streets of Pasadena, what a relief…

Spring Break

And the last time I took a week or so off, it all began with a tube up my nose. So the last time I took a legit vacation we had a Republican in the White House who hadn’t stiffed any vendors and could speak in complete sentences whenever necessary. And the last time I…

Pro Life… Until Birth

Our U.S. Chief Exec recently admitted he envied Australia “…because you have better health care than we do.” So I’ve tried, tried, tried to remain apolitical here ever since back in January, when the first ever game show host-elect was sworn into office right in front of millions of totally invisible angry old white guys.…

Under The Banner Of Confusion

Though the implication is Temple City Dental Care is taking the 3:15 to Yuma straight outa town…we are not. So today’s one of those days when I get to reflecting on stuff; and that’s what happens when the likes of May 3rd rolls around. Yeah, I reflect big-time on May 3. Like I’ve shared with…

Anatomy Of A Delicate Flower

I was a tenth grader on my way to being the next great commercial artist/NBA point guard…until Bruno showed up. So it all started with Bruno, a small-time high school hood. I was a tenth grader on my way to being the next great commercial artist/NBA point guard…until Bruno showed up. Yeah, I wasn’t always…
