This is the beginning of the rest of your life. People say that all the time but to actually feel it. To actually live it and know that it is happening is something not everyone has experienced. This blog is a testament to my life’s evolution. The stages in my life are very clear cut and obvious. I remember each overhaul and feel the emotional upheaval as if it just happened.

The Scientist


When I graduated from college, I began my life as a microbiologist. A pharmaceutical microbiologist to be exact. I loved it! I worked behind the bench and saw some of the most amazing life forms under the microscope.

Colonies of bacterial and fungal growth are amazing when you take the time to look at them. Fungal growth can be called ‘blooms’ just like flowers. Single celled bacterial growth that moves without the assistance of limbs are fascinating. I can easily see where the creators of scifi story lines get their vision of alien life forms. What better creative use of  this scientific reality.
