Welcome to my blog: the random things in the world that get me going. My endless search for the beauty in all things. To make friends, have fun, and learn something in the process. I currently live in upstate NY, which is a very nice part of the country with waterfalls, lakes and gorges. I'm a scientist working on some exciting research in cell biology. My interests are in science, astronomy, animals (I have a German Shepherd, goldfish and several tarantula pets), baseball, photography, poetry, classical music, and playing the piano.
