I am a FERMION (a particle that likes making up matter).
I am: a former lead singer in a rock/blues band, writer (published many times), former musician (guitar, keyboard – the hands are the first to go), former cyber geek (MegaRAID rocks, baby! or at least it used to in the Dark Ages), semi-retired Catholic (but no throwing a host in the toilet to see if it bleeds, OK?) of Mexican/ German/ Russian extraction via Miami, AZ (you know, by the tailings before they took them away) and SF. I love science; I'm currently studying the quantum physics theories of string particles and multi-dimensional membrane-universes (where the Grays come from). World events interest and concern me (after all, the Mayan calendar ends in 12/21/12 - maybe they knew what was up!) I love to hear about anything that a person is so into that their face lights up when they talk about it. I enjoy any celebration of life, doubly so with a good boson to my fermion along for the adventure. My motto is, “alis volat propriis”. I learned the art of rhetoric from my father; I learned the nuances of sophistry from less savory characters. I prefer art to nuance. I thoroughly enjoy people who have a ball every day just cuz. I may not know the difference between Monet’s art and Cezanne’s, but I do know that I prefer Monet; besides, he had a way cooler beard. I believe the difference between Sri Lanka and Brunei may be as simple as the difference between curry and soy. OK, maybe not… Well, that’s me in a semi-neat package. Think fast! And let the molecules fall where they may. Pax Vobiscum, y’all.
Alis Volat Propriis – “She flies with her own wings”
Boson – Particle that transmits a force
Fermion – Particle that makes up matter
Pax Vobiscum – Peace be with you!
