Treasure trove

Just found a cache of hundreds and hundreds of pages of music that I've written over the years: piano pieces, old school assignments, not one but two half-completed operas, other scores I thought were lost years ago -- hell, I found entire orchestral pieces that I'd forgotten I'd ever written!

So now I've got a three-foot-high pile of music in the middle of the floor to go through. Wonder what else I'll find?

Getting closer

It's hard to believe, but a scant 12 years after starting premed classes in 1999 (!), I'm down to 10 months left to go in medical training. Although there's a lot left to do between now and next July, the end is finally in sight.

All of which means that pretty soon it's going to be time to start looking for a job. Starting from first principles, here's an interesting page from the CDC web site about Access to Trauma Care in the U.S. If you scroll down you'll find a map of the U.S. The purple areas are within one hour of a Level I or II trauma center. The white areas are not. Food for thought....
