We are more similar than different

Adult couple walking through the forrest.

It’s been a beautiful summer in the Pacific Northwest! The days are long, warm, and almost every afternoon has been sun kissed. Indeed, we are the land of the late day sun.

This allows enough time for a follow-up on health issues that may be identified during the physical.  Read more about Sports Physicals

It was a terrifying moment for everyone, and one I have never experienced before, after almost a half century of air travel. Read more about Meditations on mortality
