Panama and Costa Rica Cruise

From January 22 to 29, 2023, Jean and I are taking friends on board the National Geographic Quest, a 100-passenger ship that will lead us through the Panama Canal and up the west coast of Costa Rica.

We’ll be on a Lindblad Expedition, whom Condé Nast Traveler declared the #1 Small Ship Cruise Line in the World.

Here’s the trip in detail and a short video here.

For more details, we invite you to join us for a 30-minute webinar from 5:30 to 6:00 p.m. ET on Tuesday, September 27th.

Kim Samuel

Isolation is an ancient challenge that’s been much worsened over the past 1,000 days of pandemic life. While we know that COVID can kill us, we must also recognize that lack of connection to the four dimensions of belonging — people, place, power, and purpose — can be just as harmful. Kim Samuel knows all about the power of belonging, and she makes the case that it’s not just a human need but a fundamental right.

Dr. Gabor Maté

Famed physician Dr. Gabor Maté probes the causes of illness and the pathways to healing. His new book, The Myth of Normal, dissects why even the best medical care can’t stop our torrent of chronic illnesses, drug use, mental illness and worse. Life itself, especially now, is exposing how Western medicine fails to treat the whole person, creating new levels of stress for our country, its institutions, and each of us.

The Last Doctor

She could be if you decide to end your life by opting for medical assistance in death.
Dr. Jean Marmoreo and Johanna Schneller have co-authored The Last Doctor on that fraught, life-ending subject where our worries for our parents’ final days are becoming the stark, startling fears about our own.

Keefe’s last book, Empire of Pain: The Secret History of the Sackler Dynasty, won the Baillie Gifford Prize for the best non-fiction book in the English language; and his book before that, Say Nothing: A True Story of Murder and Memory in Northern Ireland, was hailed by the Sunday Times as “an unrelenting epic work.”

Here be wifi.

This is the last Omnium-Gatherum blog you’ll receive until the July 1st weekend. I’m out of the office, basking in the sunny Shetlands, Orkneys and Faroes. Before leaving, I wrote my ‘Out of Office’ email note and almost said I’d be off the grid. But no one really is any more, certainly not our friends on this trip whose most urgent question wasn’t “Here be dragons?”, but “How fast is the wifi in Tórshavn?” Maybe it’s time to rejoin the Flat Earth Society.


Helen Walsh

Helen Walsh will launch her propulsive Canadian thriller at the next RamsayTalk on Monday, September 27 from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. ET. Joining her in conversation will be Sarah Fulford, Editor in Chief at Toronto Life Magazine.
Admission to the talk is FREE.
