This blog is written by Christopher J. Alterio, Dr.OT, OTR. I am an occupational therapist and own a private practice in Western New York. Thanks for reading... This blog represents an ongoing experiment in a mostly open-source exploration of occupational therapy. I am a street-level health care provider and amateur anthropologist with a post-professional clinical doctorate in occupational therapy. That makes me a pragmatic guy who gets confused with my transcendent training. Or something like that. This blog chronicles my personal experiences as an occupational therapist and general-systems thinker. The people and events described herein all share the essence of Truth, except where I have made things up. In other words, sometimes names and details have been changed. Also, every story continues - even after the last page is turned. So, this product is sold by neither weight nor volume; there may be some settling of contents after shipping.

Just then they came in sight of thirty or forty windmills that rise from that plain. And no sooner did Don Quixote see them that he said to his squire, "Fortune is guiding our affairs better than we ourselves could have wished. Do you see over yonder, friend Sancho, thirty or forty hulking giants? I intend to do battle with them and slay them. With their spoils we shall begin to be rich for this is a righteous war and the removal of so foul a brood from off the face of the earth is a service God will bless." - Cervantes
