Hello! I'm a 28 year old wife and mother returning from a long absence of Sparking. I'm currently working on an undergrad in biochemistry, with a certificate in history and philosophy of science. Current specialty areas are genetics and complementary medicine, the historic visibility of women in science, and the rise of modern science administration and its effects on innovation due to the Manhattan Project.

I also study quantum mysticism and the use of Eastern and classical Mid Eastern thinking in revitalizing public scientific literacy and progress. I'm also heavily into early Christian mysticism, though I have some severe critiques of many of the Gnostics. I'm currently working on a series of articles that have to do with active faith, the place of the Holy Spirit in the (very mundane) lives of Christians, as well as examinations of the intersections of early Christianity and Islam. My husband is currently pursuing a divinity degree and has been a full time minister for the past nine months--so our dinner table discussions get interesting fast.

More earthly pursuits of mine include gardening and orchard tending on my acre and a half. It's nice to have fresh produce again! Even if most of it has been ending up in low cal homemade cider.

For actual money, I do copywriting and work part time at a local children's resale shop. The former is good for my career, and the latter is good for my 5 year old son who goes through clothes like we used to go through potato chips.


Always, always celebrate small victories...small battles are how wars are won. After all, if the insignificant town of Waterloo had been dismissed, we would all be speaking French........

Any fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius - and a lot of courage - to move in the opposite direction.

Love is a better teacher than duty.

Most people say that is it is the intellect which makes a great scientist. They are wrong: it is character.
