I noticed I've been a very bad blogger here- no posts for 6 months!
But what should an ex-acupuncturist say on a blog he hoped would be his podium to become "America's Acupuncturist"?
I suppose if I had been more desperate for that kind of attention I wouldn't have given up until I'd become a regular Oprah guest. But I have a love-hate relationship with fame. Part of me wanted that for a long time- the more spiritual part of me values and desires anonymity. The sensible part knows that fame's not worth the sacrifices especially since fame itself makes you sacrificial. And not always for a good cause.
I did write a book about acupuncture and Oriental Medicine, and I continue to get compliments on it- people keep buying and recommending it, so I'm proud of that effort, which was the capstone of my pulsemed.org work.
Maybe one day when I settle down in my 50's I'll want to do an acupuncture practice again.
