Brent Nelson is a physician with an active primary care clinical practice in the southwest United States. Medicine is a second career, and hopefully the last one in which he will reinvent himself. When not at the office, Brent enjoys listening to music, writing poetry and fiction in the form of short stories, reading fiction, science fiction, poetry, and books with spiritual themes and undertones, and experiencing visual art in all mediums. He is very fond of the outdoors and nature. At least once a year he can be found with his family in the high desert of southern Utah where he relishes the solitude and natural beauty in the region. He feels the desert will speak to anyone who can quiet their mind and relax enough to listen.
