THANKFUL FRIDAYS

Yesterday, I rushed around working through lunch in order to get things to a stopping point by four o'clock so that I could attend seminar. I am so thankful that I was able to go. I had the pleasure of hearing Felice Frankel speak about what is the best way to express your data in a more communicable way. I was mesmerized by the images she had taken for her new book and images that would become covers for Science. She talked about how our ideas need to be expressed visually in a way that non-science people could understand and that in order to do this we needed input from all kinds of disciplines. It was like sitting in on an Interdisciplinary class at USAO. It was made me feel like my old self again, particularly when she said that we have to make science fun. I am thankful that I made it to her seminar. I am thankful for many other things today like Chris joining me in yoga yesterday and riding the scooter. I am thankful for the promise of a relaxed weekend, maybe a bottle of wine or some cider. I am thankful that my family and friends are safe and sound even though these past few weeks have been a bit of a trial for many of them. Remember, there's always a silver lining.

Have a great weekend!
