  • Don’t think outside the box!

    By Dr. Afshine Emrani

    May 7, 2014 | 5:11 pm

    “Think outside the box” we hear repeatedly. Often the wit of a sharp phrase destroys years of conventional wisdom.  Recently, my brother popped the question.  Looking over the glorious proposal album, I noticed the all important ring inside the box.  All things vital are guarded...

  • Science and Mysticism.

    In my second year of Medical School, during cadaveric dissections, I was struck by how limited our brains are.  We tease apart the dead to unravel the mysteries of life.  How odd!  Friends are shocked to see a physician with background in microbiology drawn to mysticism.  Trying to...

    Ruth had a major stroke on her 68th birthday.  Her vibrant spirit turned into that of a cucumber’s.  The team of doctors recommended her to be left in the hospital to die.  That was eight years ago.  Today, she is wheeled in and out of my office on her monthly visits, never late,...

    In preparation for the upcoming day of Love, I address her.


    I am tangled in your net, you tricked me.
    I set to capture you in words, but you did me.
    You deceiving Love, you conquer as you please.
    You’re both disease and healer, so you tease me.
    You're a false promise, my...

  • Keira Knightley on (early 20th Century) Jews and Aryans in Love

    By Naomi Pfefferman

    Keira Knightley phoned me on a rare day off from shooting her next film, “Anna Karenina,” to discuss her portrayal of a very different kind of fraught heroine in David Cronenberg’s “A Dangerous Method,” now in theaters. In this period drama based on true events, Knightley...
