Thanksgiving family dinner.

As I write this, I am listening to the rain on my roof. For us North Westerner’s we are no strangers to water falling from the sky. It’s a familiar and soothing sound. Read more about Thanksgiving

Advice for married men…

Dr. Paul
Man talking with woman.

I am very fortunate. I have been married for 37 years this December. Wow! That’s a long time. Periodically, someone will want to know the secret of my marital longevity. Couples who have been married for less than a decade wonder how to persist through all of the ups and downs of married life. I must admit I am very fortunate to have married the right person for me. But I have also learned a few things. I thought I would share some of those lessons in my blog. This one is especially for men. Read more about Advice for married men…

Every day is a new…

Sunset

My perfect day is sandwiched between watching the sun rise and the sun set. I am fortunate that I live close to Green Lake. I love to walk around the lake in the early morning and watch the eastern sky glow and finally brighten as the sun rises at 7 a.m. Ducks and geese skim across the calm water. Occasionally, a blue heron, standing on one leg, completely still, waits for breakfast to swim by. It’s been particularly brilliant during these last few clear days. When the sun finally shakes off its nightly slumber and peeks above the horizon, a new day is born. Read more about Every day is a new…

Fall leaves

Dr. Friedman (New York Times, October 31, 2014, “A Natural Fix for A.D.H.D“) wrote an interesting article about Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (A.D.H.D) and how it’s neurological basis, as we currently understand it, collides with modern life.

Why is ADHD the most prevalent psychiatric condition diagnosed in youngsters today? Recent studies show that it affects 11% of children. Many wonder whether this is really a disease after all. Read more about More on Attention Deficit Disorder, modern society, and neuroscience

The Shooting in Marysville: Why?

Dr. Paul
Marysville Pilchuck High School

We will be speculating about the motives and mental state of Jaylen Fryberg for many weeks to come. We will probably never know what he was thinking, feeling, or imagining when he brought a gun to school with the intention of shooting friends and relatives on Friday, October 24th. Investigators will try to put together whatever clues they can find and form a likely scenario. But I don’t think we will ever know for certain. Read more about The Shooting in Marysville: Why?

We need to do something

This is a guest blog from Pediatrician Jane Lester, MD. Dr. Lester sees pediatric patients at Everett Campus.

The recent school shooting in Marysville has shocked us, saddened us, and made us feel helpless. My heart goes out to all the involved kids and their families. We know we need to do something, but what?  Earthquakes and tsunamis allow us to rage at Mother Nature and send donations to the Red Cross. After yet another school shooting, we are left not knowing whom to blame. Our culture? Ourselves? Why do we tolerate these horrific events? Why do they keep happening? Read more about We need to do something
