  • There was a time, not so long ago, when summer meant “play,” and fall signaled “study” – and if there had been emojis to illustrate the mood associated with each, the first would have been met with a smiley face, the latter with a sad or, at least, a ‘meh’ countenance. Today, the lines have blurred.

  • Okay, so everyone speaks of a “bucket list” these days and we’re going to buck that mentality. No need to wait as summer wanes and fall awaits us. Take yourself, your mate, your friend or your significant other [I think that about covers all bases] north on the Northway up to Hague, NY where you will find an extremely gorgeous Lake named George and an equally impressive Bed & Breakfast named Ruah –  a word that translates to “Spirit” or “Breath” in the Old Testament.

From Homeroom to Dorm Room

This is the time of year when so many 18 year-olds set off to launch their new lives in college dorms.  Every year at this time, I see a few of my young patients go off to school.  I know most will be fine, but they aren’t usually as sure of this.  I know that even those who won’t fare well immediately will still be fine in the long run, even if the process includes academic probation, dropping classes, or even taking a semester off to regroup.  Most of us grow up eventually and find our places in the world, and while some do it more easily than others, the vast majority of us get there sooner than later.
