Let’s resolve to make progress by regressing.

As I head in to do rounds this morning at the hospital where so much has taken place, I’d hope that we could all keep the victims of yesterday’s Tucson shootings in our thoughts. I’d also hope that we could all pray not only for solace for lost loved ones and a speedy recovery for those who are healing, but also for another New Year’s resolution. Let’s resolve to make progress by regressing– regressing toward the mean and away from the margins. Whether we are dealing with bipolar personalities or bipolar communities, that kind of regression is healthy for all of us– mentally, physically and spiritually.
