1.2.3 FOCUS with Dr. Tracy Fleege

1 Joke
It’s golf season for many of my patients. I have never acquired a taste for the sport beyond
hitting a few balls off the driving range; however, this bit always hits the mark for me!
“I’m not good at golf. I never got good. I never got a hole in one…but I did hit a guy. And that’s
way more satisfying. You’re supposed to yell ‘Fore,’ but I was too busy mumbling ‘There ain’t no
way that’s gonna hit him.'” (Mitch Hedberg)

2 Quotes
“You are a light. You are the light. Never let anyone–any person or any force–dampen, dim, or
diminish your light. Study the path of others to make your way easier and more abundant. Lean
toward the whispers of your own heart, discover the universal truth, and follow its dictates.
Release the need to hate, to harbor division, and the enticement of revenge. Release all
bitterness. Hold only love, only peace in your heart, knowing that the battle of good to overcome
evil is already won. Choose confrontation wisely, but when it is your time don’t be afraid to stand
up, speak up, and speak out against injustice.
And if you follow your truth down the road to peace and the affirmation of love, if you shine like a
beacon for all to see, then the poetry of all the great dreamers and philosophers is yours to
manifest in a nation, a world community, and a Beloved Community that is finally at peace with
itself.” (U.S. Representative John Lewis, 2/21/1940 – 07/17/2020) #goodtrouble

“I guess the only time most people think about injustice is when it happens to them.” (Charles
Bukowski)

3 Ideas: Body, Mind, Soul

Body: “Approach love and cooking with reckless abandon.” (H. Jackson Brown, Jr., Life’s Little
Instruction Book)

“The table is a meeting place, a gathering ground, the source of sustenance and nourishment,
festivity, safety, and satisfaction. A person cooking is a person giving: Even the simplest food is
a gift.” (Laurie Colwin)

The following is one of my favorite recipes. (Caveat: I get creative when I cook and tend to
estimate my measurements, especially with soups. I add dashes of chili powder, cumin, paprika,
and cayenne pepper to this recipe. See what works for you!)

Mind: When I was a kid, I devoured science. No wait…I still do that! I subscribed to a 1980’s
kids science magazine (3-2-1 Contact, anyone?), did the baking soda volcano bit, had a
telescope, owned 5 editions of “Charlie Brown’s Super Book of Questions & Answers”, and got
my first Trivial Pursuit game (adult version) at age 10. I recently discovered the following image:
Hubble’s high-definition panoramic view of the Andromeda Galaxy. Click on the full size image
link below the initial picture. THEN zoom in and magnify the various sections. If this doesn’t blow
your mind, I really don’t know what to tell you!

Soul: As always, music does more to soothe my soul and settle my brain than anything else.
The following link is from one of my all-time favorite films. Enjoy!
