Midsummer Days' NDT-- by Colleen Carey

“An expert is someone who knows more and more about less and less, until eventually he knows everything about nothing.” Anonymous

Is it possible that a year has passed since we all first met. I for one have been drinking in the beauty of the beginning of summer. Usually, summer for me is a time to kick back… enjoy the slower pace at both work and home. But this summer seems unusually calm. No lectures to prepare, no phone calls to practicum kids, no stress about the details that seemed endless at this time last year. And yet, in the quiet and calm, I miss the intensity. I miss the challenge of a new opportunity. And so, I will not be idle long. I will add something new, another mountain to climb, another journey on which to embark. Are you too ready for the next leg of the journey?

I think about each of you and wonder how you have grown. How I would love to see each of you treating now. Have you journeyed to the place that you want to be as a therapist? It is time now to look again at those notes and pictures in Lois’ book. You will be amazed at how much flew over your head the first time around! The more you know, the less you know.

And so, as I head to the beach this weekend, I will think how I missed the waves of the ocean last summer. But I will remember the great things that we did together instead. I will be grateful for meeting and sharing with 20 dedicated therapists.
