Welcome to my website.  Here you will find a potpourri of my thoughts, opinions, comments mostly on health and health care and life.

Some of my postings are writings, meanderings, poems, etc. from long ago.  Some are more recent expressions prompted by the many movements concerned with health reform.  The most notable recent efforts have been inspired by Dr. Kitzhaber via the Archimedes Movement..
