I gave Freud the slip and am too Jung to know better. I love my work and find psychiatry to be a fascinating and rewarding profession.
I love being a part-time father and all the pleasures and challenges it provides. In particular riding bikes with my sons along Elwood beachfront, gorging ourselves on 7 apples ice cream (Turkish delight!) and playing connect-4 with the younger and scrabble with the elder.
My most recent mental state examination of myself:
Mildly dishevelled balding male wearing jeans, T-shirt and fancy-schmancy Nike runners developed by NASA (or so the man told me.) Warm and engaging manner except for periods on IPad when he seemed deeply preoccupied. Speech lovely on the ear, especially if one likes South African eccents (sic)
I am trying to talk less and listen more
I am working on working less
My iPad - allows me a window to the world from the comfort of my bed
Camping with the kids - tossing the cellphone and toasting marshmallows (or toasting the cellphone...)
Wikipedia - I love hypertext links and broadening my knowledge
Tabasco - makes every food come alive
Rooibos tea - a south African classic
I have never been mistaken for Ryan gosling
