Hi Folks. Back from vacation. It was nice acting like a kid again (outside most days riding my bike, playing golf, or kayaking). After throwing in plenty of quality time with the family and significant stretches of time spent sitting around scratching my a**, it was perfect.
I’ll keep this post brief. I just wanted to take the opportunity to point out a minor change to this page that you may have noticed. By clicking on the image on the right, you will be able to order a collection of my publications entitled “La Vie en Tranches/Parts of Lives.” The book is published by the Douglas Institute and includes all the columns that have appeared in Métro from September 2005 to April 2009. It also contains my first popular publication, an op-ed piece written for Le Devoir, three publications that appeared in The Montreal Gazette (one of which was co-written by my then 11 year old daughter, Amy), three articles on depression and burnout written for Mammoth Magazine (a publication produced by our Stress Center), a lengthy article on the management of anxiety, and an article I wrote about my experiences adopting older children.
All the publications are translated except for the Gazette articles. The book is French on one side and English on the other. This second edition includes all the content from the first edition and adds twenty eight Métro columns, one Gazette article, and the anxiety management article.
This great piece of Canadian non-fiction can be had for a measly $20 (cheap), although if you bump into me and ask nice, I’ll give you a free copy. In fact, I may force one on you even if you don’t ask!
