Twelve Hour Days and Coffee
The entire month has been mostly twelve hour days and coffee. I've had my brain consumed by two scientific papers that I'm writing. I haven't worked on a dance pole since late August. I fixed that today. Ballet and pole dance. My pole and ballet work have benefited from the distance. Why? Because I breathe science like I breathe dance.
My work makes me happy too. Actually calling it work is wrong. I am lucky enough to have been paid to do something I love doing.
Kirbyville, Texas July 2006. Texas Air Quality Experiment. Real meteorology deep in East Texas.
I'm a pole dancer, ballet dancer, ice hockey player and research meteorologist. I live in Denver, Colorado with my wife of 20 years and two Siamese cats. I found the gift late in life. I was 52 the first time I went around the dance pole and 53 when I made my first plié.
