I am re-watching Grey’s Anatomy as I date endless Chinese documents about computer processors. It’s been so fun. I love my job.
“In the beginning, God created the heaven and the earth. At least, that’s what they say. He created the birds of the air and the beasts of the field, and he looked at his creation and he saw that it was good. And then god created man, and it’s been downhill ever since. The story goes on to say that God created man in his own image, but there’s not much proof of that. After all, God made the sun and the moon and the stars, and all man makes is trouble.
And when man finds himself in trouble, which is most of the time, he turns to something bigger than himself, to love or fate or religion. To make sense of it all. As doctors, we know more about the human body now than at any other point in our history. But the miracle of life itself – why people live and die, why they hurt or get hurt – is still a mystery. We want to know the ason, the secret, the answer at the back of the book. Because the thought of our being all alone down here is just too much for us to bear. But at the end of the day, the fact that we show up for each other, in spite of our differences, no matter what we believe, is reason enough to keep believing.” Dr. Miranda Bailey
