I have worked most of my life in medical research and clinical medicine - but the opportunity popped up a couple of years ago to become a public school teacher - it was a good time for me, I love children - So I did it!
I am an electron microscopist (both transmission & scanning), a private pilot, certified in Plastination (Body Worlds 3), sea kayaker (not here in Houston), microbiologist, purple heart veteran, have traveled overseas, have adopted children, love sushi, lived in Heidelberg for 7 months, etc., etc., etc.
I never take the easy way out, and I don't have to have everything my way.
What Gives Me Hope
Not sure where my hope came from - but I will let NOTHING take it from me!
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
ALL of my efforts would be exclusively TO BENEFIT THE PEOPLE - no efforts for the system. I believe any system is secondary to people!
What/who changed my life and why
Future Shock/Jimmy Stewart movies/JFK assassination/Spencer W. Kimble
All are in my thoughts today after more than 20 years in most cases.
