★☆★ ABOUT JEFFREY M LEVINE MD ★☆★
Growing up I couldn’t decide whether to be an artist or a doctor, so I decided to do both. As a practical matter I could live as a medical doctor and create art, but if I lived as an artist I could not practice medicine. I found inspiration in the lives of physician-artists and writers such as William Carlos Williams, Frank Netter, Andreas Vesalius, Eliot Porter, Roman Vishniak, and Anton Chekhov. My guidebook was AJ Cronin’s autobiographical work, Adventures in Two Worlds, which tells of his life as a doctor and a writer.
There are few professions like medicine. It allows entry into unseen aspects of people’s lives and gains a window into the complexities of humanity. As a specialist in geriatrics I have the great privilege of taking care of debilitated people in whom the gains are limited but rewarding when they occur. Throughout my years of working as a doctor I’ve managed to carve out time to make art and thereby exercise different parts of my brain. This YouTube channel gathers up a portion of my creative activities and organizes them for your exploration and enjoyment.
Some words from my role models:
“When they ask me, as of late they frequently do, how I have for so many years continued an equal interest in medicine and the poem, I reply that they amount for me to nearly the same thing.”
William Carlos Williams (1883-1963)
“Medicine is my legal wife, literature my mistress. When I’m bored with one I spend the night with the other. This is irregular but at least not monotonous, and neither suffers from my infidelity. If I did not practice medicine, I could not devote my freedom of mind and my stray thoughts to literature.”
Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860-1904)
