Yayayayayay!!! Just receive the proof copy of Lisa's book. Lisa worked so hard on this, she was working on this the night she passed away. This took a lot of people: I had to search out to find those that were helping her. I have soooo much gratitude to those who have helped make her dream come true. This was the most important thing in her life. I'll let you know when it is published. At that time, you can order it through her website at http://www.awakeningtrue.com

I'll be broadcasting our Astronomy live talk on Friday (10/28) at 9:30pm PDT. Available on the web at http://tinyurl.com/ifamaui

A Grain of Sand: From Maui to the Moon in 3D
Gary Greenberg, PhD

Sand in continually created throughout the Universe from the collisions of heavenly bodies and the explosions of stars. The moon is covered in sand, and outer space is filled with dust and sand from the actions of our dynamic Universe. We see these tiny outer-space travelers as falling stars when they enter our atmosphere at speeds that make the air around them glow bright white. On Earth, sand is produced more slowly, from the erosion of rock into tiny grains of mineral. Dr. Greenberg will take us on a visually stunning tour of sand. Although it is one of the most ubiquitous objects in nature, each grain of sand is unique. Greenberg will illustrate the beauty of these tiny objects as seen through his high definition 3D light microscope. Red/cyan 3D glasses will be provided to the audience. If you are viewing online, attempt to locate a pair of 3D glasses to appreciate the stereo images at the end of the presentation.

It's been a while since I posted on my blog site.  I finally had the strength and time to get this one out (took 2 months however).  I talk a bit about what has been going on with me but also a good update on my transition.  This is almost 2 years since my SRS!  Wow, time has gone fast, espcially after Lisa passed away. 

A warning though - the 2nd part (transition) might be TMI (too much infor) for some ...
