I read the other day about a modern-day superman. This gentleman, a doctor at a major New York City hospital, finds time in his schedule to write fiction (for which he has won awards), non-fiction, and stage plays, teach writer’s workshops, and lecture at a university. In addition to the M.D. behind his name, he has earned master’s degrees in European History, Philosophy and U.S. History, Bioethics, and Fine Arts. He also has a law degree and is licensed to practice in two states.
All of this 39-year-old’s degrees were earned at prestigious American universities: Brown University, Columbia University, Albany Medical College, New York University, and Harvard Law School. Since these noteworthy achievements apparently were not enough, he became a licensed New York City sightseeing guide.
This blog started out with a question, “How does he do that?” and it ends with a question, “What does one do when depressed?”
