I come from the West.

I come from Texas, New Mexico and Washington.  I got an education in life sciences, genetics, and fine arts.  I am naturally curious about diverse topics.  When I do research, I begin with questions that I need answers to.  Those answers allow me to make progress toward a deeper and richer understanding.  I liked writing my book.  It seemed to increase the space of inquiry inside my curious brain.  During the recession, finding a use for intelligent inquiry would naturally lead a person to write down their observations.  Asking myriad questions has been important to this process of observing and understanding.

Neil Gaimon wrote a short story called “The Truth is a Cave in the Black Mountains”  In this story he wrote, “Sometimes I think that truth is a place.  In my mind, it is like a city: there can be a hundred roads, a thousand paths, that will all take you, eventually, to the same place.  It does not matter where you come from.  If you walk toward the truth, you will reach it, whatever path you take.”  I think asking a lot of related questions is like wandering the many paths that lead toward a more complete picture of whatever the truth is that a person can realize.  It can make life experiences more meaningful when a person finds answers to their questions.
