Macbeth is my favorite play. My favorite book. My favorite
collection of English words. The poetic beauty of the text, the directness of
the plot, the representations of madness, supernatural, and reality, and the
shear magnitude of the tragedy are what mak...
I'm a geochemist. In the past ten years I've fixed mass spectrometers, blasted sapphires with a laser beam, explored for uranium in a nature reserve, and measured growth patterns in fish ears, and helped design the next generation of the world's most advanced ion probe.

When glacial loads are washed away by rain
Then letting go the ice sheets that advanced
Might wake volcanoes in an arc again...
