From my very first post I wanted to pay homage to the speech which inspired the title of my blog, Ain't I a Woman? by Sojourner Truth. Such a beautiful speech, such a beautiful name, such a beautiful woman. It is one of my favorite pieces. I strive to emulate this style in my own work. Poetic and powerful. Honest and unafraid. Memorable. And I like brevity. It too is beautiful. This is the standard I wish to be held to as I explore the question with you ~ ain't I a writer?

Heading into the storm ...

for this lecture. Dr. Gawande has had lots of short stories in The New Yorker that you can find on the web if you enjoy his writing. If you have any interest in health care you almost certainly would. I am quite intrigued with his latest book, and probably won't be able to resist picking up a copy today. I read a couple of reviews of it yesterday that were quite impressive.
