“Don’t worry, at least we will die together!”

Hi, friends!

In this post I simply want to invite you to read an essay I wrote which was recently published in a journal I admire.  Called Intima: a journal of narrative medicine, it is a literary place where medicine is explored through story, narrative non-fiction, and art.

My piece is called “Don’t worry, at least we will die together” and is an account of an experience I had back in 2015 while in Jerusalem.

In addition to reading my piece, I hope you will explore Intima and immerse yourself in any of the outstanding works that were submitted.  The journal, which originated at Columbia University in 2010, is a treasure that I hope many of you will come to know.

I haven’t posted much about my interest in Middle East issues, so I’ll give you just a bit of background.  If you do nothing else, please click on the Intima logo above and check out my essay.   For just a little more on my experience, keep reading.
