There are “Aha! moments” in life when an important insight, choice or decision is realized. In 2012, I attended cultural anthropology classes at St. Edward's University in Austin, Texas. My husband and I are both IT professionals, but I have an interest in learning more about our planet. Texas is a pro gas and oil State so when the time came to select a topic for my capstone paper, I chose to explore horizontal hydraulic fracturing (fracking).
