Recommended Reading (and Listening)!

Always I am interested in “staying in the conversation.”  Here are some of the people and programs who have dramatically shifted and added to who I am and how I interpret the world.
If you are enjoying the astronomical artwork I use/will use on the site you MUST visit the Astronomy Picture of the Day website!  It has been creating a sense of awe and connection within me for a long time.  When I am stressed, I know I can flip through it’s pages for a happy distraction and literal new perspective!
