Using nature itself to view nature. Very Sun Tzu, using the "landscape" as one would use soldiers and weapons, as familiar tools at immediate disposal. .

"Anne Boleyn, one of the wives of King Henry VIII, had a dog named Purkoy, who got its name from the French ‘pourquoi’ because it was very inquisitive."

Gorgeous Easter Eggs From the Master Patissiers of France -- far too pretty to even consider eating. http://www.slate.com/blogs/the_eye/2014/04/18/art_inspired_easter_egg_eye_candy_from_france_photos.html 
Chocolatiers love a holiday, be it Christmas, Valentine’s Day, or Easter. The French version of the Easter Bunny is Easter Bells (les cloches de Pâques)—which allegedly fly to Rome for a few days before the holiday to be blessed by the Pope before returning with chocolate eggs for the kids....

Tagline
Science writer, cocktail physics
Introduction
I'm a science writer, author of several popular science books for general readers. I also have my own blog at Scientific American, Cocktail Party Physics. Most recent books: "Me, Myself and Why: Searching for the Science of Self," coming out January 28, 2014, and "The Calculus Diaries: How Math Can Help You Lose Weight, Win in Vegas, and Survive a Zombie Apocalypse" (2010).
Bragging rights
Married to +Sean Carroll (affectionately known as the Time Lord). Black belt in jujitsu (although I no longer practice). Ran a program for two years matching scientists with writers, producers and directors in Hollywood, for the National Academy of Sciences. Dedicated to stamping out the notion of "two cultures": science is as much a part of creative human endeavor as the arts. I make a mean pad thai. Also orange/cranberry scones. Quite possibly first and only person to utter the phrase "negative index of refraction" on late-night TV (Craig Ferguson).
