I added a new page tab above titled “What Do I Do?”
I decided to share a little about my professional life and education here on Sleuth4Health for three basic reasons.
1. My lifetime of music involvement is such a contrast with what I write about here. Evidence, data, reports, rules, clueless know-it-alls and angry mobs – only tell part of the story when it comes to the subjective art of music.
2. I think about all the times folks who had a few too many have approached me when I was playing a gig and confessed how much they regretted quitting their piano lessons as a kid. How perfectly ironic that I wish I would have had better science instruction as a kid!
3. It is a subject I know well, can discuss at length after several beers and not sound like an idiot. I wear the vernacular like a comfortable, old slipper.
So if you’re curious, please click on “What Do I Do?”
It has been fun and educative for me to get out of my usual box and explore the topics I’ve posted about here so far. I will continue to joyfully do so! It is impossible for me not to learn with every post. When you start with as small a knowledge base as I had about a subject (biotechnology, plant genetics, etc.), the learning curve is almost vertical!
I added both “science” and “humanities” to the description for my blog. To balance out the vertical learning curve, every now and then I’d like to hit something I actually know about, like today! I’d also like to credit the study of music for helping to train a hungry, open mind.
Thanks for taking the journey with me and I hope you keep reading.
