Docere

Some years ago, as my Kathy was emerging from her NASA.years, she formed an LLC mainly to collect the proceeds from her speaking gigs.  More recently, it is collecting the royalties from the on-line textbook she wrote about her Kinesiology subject of 9 years, Scientific Writing.  After my retirement, I asked her to add me.  Someone might end up paying me for writing, consulting, or even patient care.  Plus it provided an excuse for new business cards and stationery, for which my old forms were now obsolete.  As I described our new venture to my dear high school friend Rod Taft, he asked what our main product was.  I replied “knowledge”, which, you know, is good.  This evening, as partners we sat before the fire, we decided some additional description might be necessary for out post-retirement venture, Kathy’s still to begin.   Kathy found the word “Luxuria sed implemini”, in seeking the Latin term for debauchery.  We’ll call our lawyer tomorrow.  By the way, docere comes from the Latin “to teach”.

I retired from the Rheumatology division of Michigan Medicine end of June '19 after 36 years there. Upon hitting Ann Arbor for the second time (I went to school here) it took me almost 8 months to meet Kathy, 17 months to buy her a house (on Harbal, where we still live), and 37 months to marry her. Kids never came, but we've been blessed with a crowd of colleagues, friends, neighbors and family that continues to grow. Lots of them are going to show up in this log eventually. Stay tuned.
