Dear Zachary & Short Stories

I watched a documentary last night that was nothing short of heartbreaking and infuriating. If nothing else, this documentary clearly shows the importance of doing your job well – no matter what that job is. Paying attention and stepping up when you need to, not playing favorites or valuing one person’s life over another. A murder could have been prevented if more people had done their jobs thoroughly. They dropped the ball.

Currently reading a book of short stories called Honeydew. My favorite story so far was about an anesthesiologist who falls in love with and marries a patient who is too sick to leave the hospital. Neither was planning on marriage, life just happened – even in a hospital room. There really is some light you just can’t quell. The patient dies a few weeks later, but they were the happiest they had ever been in those few days together.
