The Man from M.I.C.L.O.

Richard said he used the acronym MICLO--Masterly Inactivity and Cat-Like Observation--to describe his approach to practicing medicine. I was struck that his approach to his work is not unlike my own, even though it never occurred to me to express it in words, much less an acronym.

Richard asked me why I was taking a photograph of the corner of his yard. I said I liked the image of a tree trunk at the bottom, tree leaves on the top, and nothing in the middle. Cat-like observation, really.

Ironically, Richard and Paul don't have any cats.
