I am a surgery resident with a love for stories. They give meaning to what I do. I made this website to give them form in words and photos and drawings. My hope is to write so I don’t forget these stories and what I find meaningful because they can be the easiest thing to let go of.

I also want to include failures, rough drafts, and half-baked ideas, because writing – like training to be a surgeon – is about the process. Sharing my successes and failures helps remind me that both are Ok and neither are the point.

Why is the site called The Rootlets?
