Ah, summertime. Long sun-filled days, the desire to be outdoors all the time and the slower pace. I love kayaking more than anything (well, maybe not more than Peeps or chipmunks).

Computer records can be a lot neater than paper records, that’s for sure. I understand the push for medical records to be online.

Now that I am semi-retired, I have a lot more time on my hands for reflection.  My latest thoughts are around inspiration. As most of you know, I am very involved in my grad school alumni volunteer organization, HBS CAP.  We do pro-bono consulting for Boston area non-profits. During June and July we are busy […]

I just love the long, lazy days of summer. I find myself slowing down, not just because of the heat, but because everything just seems so much more relaxed now. I am happy that we get to eat our meals in the daylight. Our family room/eating area is my favorite room in the house (aside […]
