Sans Merci by Johnna Adams
There was once a very great American surgeon named Halsted. He was married to a nurse. He loved her— immeasurably. One day Halsted noticed that his wife’s hands were chapped and red when she came back from surgery. And so he invented rubber gloves. For her. It is one of the great love stories in medicine. The difference between inspired medicine and uninspired medicine is love.
When I met Ana, I knew:
I loved her to the point of invention.

I received an email this morning that recalled something I wrote two years ago. I said, way back then, how excited I would be if something I wrote was graffiti on some wall in some city. Since then a few pictures in a few different countries have trickled in but this is by far the largest piece and I love it.
High Point, North Carolina, and specifically the amazing person (who I will keep anonymous just in case) who made it street art, thank you! Anyone else want to add to my slowly growing list, I would love to see what you can do!
You know when sometimes you meet someone so beautiful and then you actually talk to them and five minutes later they’re as dull as a brick? Then there’s other people, when you meet them you think, “Not bad. They’re okay.” And then you get to know them and… and their face just sort of becomes them. Like their personality’s written all over it. And they just turn into something so beautiful.
Today’s song is for my favorite witch: Hermione Granger. After I finished my first Harry Potter-themed song, a friend suggested I write one about Hermione and her time-traveling talisman, the Time-Turner. In this song, I beg Hermione for just one date—and then suggest, that if she enjoys it, we could relive it over and over, forever. True HP fans, do you understand all the references to Hermione in the lyrics? Free downloads of this track are here (just enter $0 as the price). And if you have ideas for other Harry Potter-themed songs, let me know. Enjoy, friends! — KC
Time-Turner (for Hermione Granger)
When I heard your parents are dentists,
I started to floss every night.
Put down the Polyjuice Potion;
you are the one I want in my life.
Just one date, that’s all I ask for;
just one walk through the Forbidden woods.
And if you enjoy our night,
we can turn your Time-Turner
until the end of time.
Well, I don’t have red hair or any cool scars,
but, darling, I know how to feed a bookworm.
Let me write new spells for you;
let me help free elves from servitude.
Listen to this beautiful song that was dedicated to our blog!

This is so unbelievably beautiful.
