Prince is my favorite musician. I have always felt he had musical genius, ahead of his time. My favorites of his include: "When Doves Cry" "Purple Rain" "Alphabet Street" "Little Red Corvette" and "Raspberry Beret." I have seen him in concert many times and love his enthusiasm and energy.
Although he is my favorite musician my most commonly played on my ipod are probably: Ludovico Einaudi (modern classical - most relaxing music in the world), and Sarah MacLaughlin, for her ethereal sounds.

Running a trauma, center of chaos...
A picture that defines me: Yikes
I can't think of a single picture, or word that defines me
The closest I can come is one of me at work
Something I don't often talk about on spark is the fact that I am a bit of a workaholic. I *love* my job and it is a large part of who I am. I have been an emergency physician and flight physician for 10 years now. As I work at an academic medical center I am also heavily involved in teaching at the medical school. Every day I go to work I have the honor of taking care of people during times of crisis, every once in a while I am lucky enough to save a life. As much as I enjoy taking care of patients, the aspects of teaching medical students and young physicians in training is every bit as rewarding. I began involvement in emergency medicine in 1990 working on an ambulance in college and quickly learned that my passion in life was taking care of people. Even in the most chaotic trauma resuscitation, I feel calm and centered. As a physician who has also been a patient many times, I also enjoy treating simple problems - if I am able to have a positive impact or help someone even in a small way it is rewarding for me. No matter where I am or what I am doing, at my core I am a physician.

I love you all and I am having SOOOO much fun with this photo blog. I think it is helping me connect back to the spark in a meaningful way, and I also have enjoyed following fellow bloggers on this adventure.
Happily, I have to take a (brief) break from the photoblog and spark. Ron, my father and I are leaving for a Caribbean cruise tomorow! Woot! Woot! WOOT! Flying to Miami tomorrow (hanging out on the beach) then on a cruise to Bahamas, Tortola, Dominican Republic, and Grand Turk. Should be amazing! Not sure if I will be able or have time to Spark during that time, so I might be gone for the week.
See you back here on February 26th!
