feel less guilty when you travel

My six year old's newest obsession is FlightAware.com.   The website provides a little picture of the chosen specific airplane (you just plug in airlines & flight number) with its exact location shown on a map plus planned flight path plus flight time countdown.  What an amazing way for a child to feel a little more connected to you, even when you are in the sky and unreachable.  Plus, it can't hurt the geography education.

doctors matter

So another April 30th is almost over.  One hour and thirty-seven minutes left.  I can almost breathe again. I find the emotional weight of anniversaries  -- both good and bad ones -- amazing.  April 30th is a bad one here.  Cancer.  I wonder if most doctors are aware of the emotional havoc medical illness plays with a life?  It might be hard to see as most patients do not wear fear or need on their faces.   I wonder how many doctors know what comfort they can offer beyond the technical medical care?  Or, how much this matters?
