The Boomer Personality Part 3: The Relocation

Adjusting to ex pat relocation is not like hopping a flight from Miami to Belize City or San Jose and jumping into a hammock with a book and a beer. Culture shock is inevitable and variable depending on the location chosen.

Boomer Part 2

Boomer Part 2

Being a semi recovering Netflix addict, I recently watched an Australian film called Tracks. It’s about a woman, currently in my age range, who at 25 thought it would be a swell idea to cross the expanse of the Australian desert from Alice Springs to the Indian Ocean. Not only that but with her dog and 4 camels to carry her gear while she walked.

Suicide is Painless…..

…”it brings on many changes”- among the survivors.

Mystery of the Mind

Mystery of the Mind

In his last lecture, “Mystery of the Mind”, famed neurosurgeon Wilder Penfield said that the mind was dependant on the brain and could only be understood metaphysically (therefore outside the scientific realm). Yet the mind and conflicts therein do unquestionably influence bodily physiology. Conversely physical diseases can influence mental health. The DSM classification of mental disorders has an Axis III to list physical ailments that can underpin Axis I, the major psychiatric afflictions.
