A Little More Housekeeping...

As I return to my normal American life, I'm forced to figure out how to keep this column alive. More travel, trips to exotic locations and daring adventures are one method. But my little cabin and my dog are calling to me and imploring me to stay at home and embrace the things I spoke of in this column; family, friends, freedom and a little fun.

So, I will embark on a domestic project that takes a closer look at a project that I completed in the spring of this year. I spent three months riding along with the Durham Public Housing Unit and produced a documentary project about living and working in the inner city housing projects of Durham. This project can be viewed at navigate to the stories section and click on "THE MAC." Takes about 3 minutes to view, but I believe its worth the time. I hope to look at the same issues of poverty and inner city life through the eyes of the health care providers.

One thing I learned this past year, is that telling difficult and powerful stories does not need to involve travel to developing countries and conflict zones, a multitude of people desperately need a voice to their stories and they usually live just down the road.

So please stay tuned, as I hope to have new stories and interactions within the next few weeks. Please pass the column along and comment as you read.

Thanks so much for all those who have read my "short" entries (the 250 word limit didn't last too long!) and taken the dialogs beyond your computer and into your lives.

And, in the immortal words of Edward R. Murrow, "Goodnight and Good luck."

If you haven't already, get your hands on this book called Shutterbabe, by Deborah Copaken Kogan. I just finished reading it, and it's a very insightful look into the life of a photojournalist, and gives insight into how the author struggled with the same questions you're dealing with now.

Hope you're enjoying being back on home soil. Talk soon! (Say hi to your mom for me.)
