The Alder Grove

"In my sleep thought that I was standing in an alder grove of the straightest and fairest trees which the heart of man could think of or imagine."

A word from the geekdom

Seriously, how the hell does Brian Greene make MATH look like fun??? All he has to do is look into that camera, put on that smile and I am with a pencil in hand doing equations again. We'll see what kind of a grasp I have on this business as we go along in finishing the Special Relativity course on World Science U. I also need to squeeze in some time for Climate Change and Public Health on the Coursera platform. Plus, I just picked up the new book by Bill Nye and an older one of Lawrence Krauss' called "Fear of Physics: A Guide for the Perplexed" which I cannot wait to dive into.

The book list on the blog has been completely updated and revamped in its current home as a Google doc as it looks like the old site is never going to come back online. So, no more playing with the html over there. :( I have to tackle the full updates on the music and movie pages yet but they are a way bigger task (especially since the vinyl has been growing). I'll have to work away on that after the holiday rush is over.

Oh!! I've decided that I am FINALLY going back to NYC on vaca next year because....I want to go the World Science Festival!! This time for *sure* I am hitting the American Museum of Natural History and the Hayden Planetarium. I really, really want to see the Dark Universe show there. It's gonna be a nerd-fest and I can't wait!!

Enough math for one night...time for a hot bath and to crack open a brand new book!
