There is strength in knowing that you’ve traveled far and true in the realms of what it means to be a human in hurt. There’s a certain relief at the resignation of knowing that the Earth will continue to orbit around a sun that has yet to burn out for eons to come. There is purity in knowing that the wind can quell your sorrows and place your anxieties to sleep if you give it that power. There is a cleansing in cold rain drenching your clothes in a downpour if you lend your muscles to the power of nature so that they may relax. No matter what tribulations you journey through remember that your heart is still beating with the hum of the Earth and your breath inundates your lungs like a transparent and active ocean.

Many things have inspired me along the way, from the way that atoms interact to universal forces working in tandem to bring joy into my life. I earned a Bachelor's degree in Biological Chemistry from Grinnell College and a Master's of Science in Education and Social Change from the University of Miami. Currently I am a high school science educator studying at Florida Institute of Technology to become a Board Certified Behavior Analyst. What can I say? An educated mind is a lively soul!
