Revisiting My Memoirs

Some thoughts on my own memoirs….With God’s help I’ve been on a long journey to enhance my love and diminish my anger and fear. At 70 years of age, I’ve written 21 essays reflecting on God’s hand in my life. A famous writer once suggested you need to bleed on the page to write well. I have had much reason to celebrate despite the hard times expressed in my work. If the reader has 3 hours and $3.99 to spare I suggest you consider this portion of a review by one reader: “Dr. Rubin uses themed mini vignettes as chapters to tell the story of his life. It is a beautifully written account of one man’s life journey through childhood wounds and suffering. He takes the reader through the ups and downs of his career, his marriage, and parenting. There is pain, trial, joy, and ultimately peace. We journey with him as he travels from a victim to a victor. It highlights surrender, humility, faith, and above all else, love. It is almost a ‘how-to’ self-help book if it didn’t read like a poignant novel.” She later says, “Look Backward (Angel) is a story of hope and encouragement.”

A Whole-Hearted Worklife

I dropped out of clinical medicine after 15 years of practice. I became a medicolegal claims professional managing malpractice claims. My job was a balance of medicine, business and law. It was the most meaningful profession of my life and the “flow” state became a frequent friend of mine in my nearly 30 years of claims practice. I never regretted the move and no physician I met with a claim was ever surprised I had made the change. Thank God for large favors.
