Some of you know that I turn(ed) 50 this month, and with medicine making rapid strides, I fully expect this may be the halfway point in my life.

But instead of my solitary navel gazing, I thought it would be infinitely more entertaining and illuminating to see how other Deep Thinkers see themselves, at whatever stage they are.

Please join me in some group therapy as I traverse this key inflection point in my life. Perhaps we can all learn a little about others, and a lot about ourselves.
Happy New Year, and I hope to see you at the Meetup!
