A couple of bloggers have inspired me lately. I’ve showcased what I think are influential pieces on my home page. They write movingly about their own visions for psychiatry. I got to thinking how nice it would be for readers to see more of this. After all, there’s a lot of leaders out there who are on their own singular paths professionally–paths worth sharing. Leaders “know the way, go the way, and show the way.”
It’s nice to have a blogroll with links to writers I admire and respect. It would be nicer still for them to allow me to give them center stage if they have the time and inclination. So far I’ve been pretty lucky to host a couple of them:
It’s not like the only path home is to the past. I don’t think that’s what they mean. A path home could be the future, not just for psychiatry but for what’s most important in health care generally–our patients. I think these leaders build bridges between the past and future.
