Gift From the Sea

The sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy, or tooimpatient. To dig for treasures shows not only impatience and greed,but lack of faith. Patience, patience, patience, is what the seateaches. Patience and faith. One should lie empty, open, choiceless asa beach -- waiting for a gift from the sea.
- Anne Morrow Lindbergh

I am back from vacation (aka my honeymoon) and about to start my new rotation in the MICU (Medical Intensive Care Unit) tomorrow. I know that things will get a bit technical and, maybe, controversial as I go through the next month... but, before then, let's reflect on a great week:

I was on the Riviera Maya at a great resort (the Grand Mayan) which is located between Puerto Morelos and Playa del Carmen. From there we drove up to Cancun, down to Xel-Ha and Tulum, and then took the ferry to Cozumel for a day of awesome snorkeling (pics still being developed) and amazement at the sheer beauty of nature. Enjoy the mini slideshow. If you'd like to see a larger collection of the over 125 pics I took, you can go to my page:

Dear Veronica,
You honeymooned in Paradise!  What a beautiful place.  The water is so crystal clear.  The sand's so white with the sky so azure blue.  Perfect!
This entry fair lifted me up as we have heavy rains and hail here in the English Lakes.  
What a delight to see your happy smiling face again.
Hope you don't have to work too hard when you get back to the grindstone.
Take care,
Jeanie xxx

i havent random blogged upon your blog in a while.  congrats on your wedding and making it to year 21 of internship.   the geriatric thing is different.  i spent most of the last 6 months of my grandma's life with her in the hospital off and on.   sometimes the staffers (nurses, docs, med assistants, housekeepers, etc) were awesome, and sometimes they were phony and sometimes they were just plain unable to deal with the fact that there wasnt a whole lot they could do to help some of the peeps who were in the last stage of their life and seeking comfort rather then a cure. i think that part or pediatrics would be the two hardest areas to work in for me if i was a doctor.  

good luck next year. visit the rant anytime!
