I am a recently retired Cardiologist. This Memoir tracks what I refer to as a “para-biography;” life experiences which serve as the core for the ongoing layers of an onion skin that produces a unique personality and a unique personal philosophy. Sigmund Freud might agree that a child’s personality develops inductively from the inside-out; but would have to be peeled back deductively from the outside-in when eventually untangled as an adult. It also demonstrates that viewpoints are mutable, then change and evolve over time.
My beliefs are personal, and as such should be taken with the grain of salt that does not require debate. For the most part, if reading to the end; one will see that a great deal of it becomes somewhat ecumenical. This is a long journey which will be published incrementally. Each vignette stands by itself; yet each one is interwoven to the rest like the interlocking pieces of a jig-saw puzzle .
I also attach a disclaimer about included or attached material that may be copy righted; will identify and credit this material as such and will make every effort to protect identities where indicated; either by changing names or deleting certain photographs that exist in the original text.
