Helping us to see

My ophthalmologist, Dr. Merritt Linn of Portland, has announced that he's retiring in October after 40 years in practice. A careful, skilled, and thoughtful doctor, he is also the author of a deeply moving novel entitled A Book of Songs, which was published in the 1980s. You may never hear him say "Look at my light," as I have many times, but if you find his book and open it up, he'll be saying the same thing to you in a different way.

We wish him the very best in his retirement.

And if you're looking into a replacement, might I suggest Eyehealth Northwest?

They're simply awesome.

Ever since childhood I've often wondered why ophthalmologists always seem to wear glasses.

A hearty second, by the way, for Eyehealth NW. Good people.

A friend just forwarded your blog to me so I could read the beautiful words you wrote about my father. Thanks!
