Who would remember Helen’s face
Lacking the terrible halo of spears?
Who formed Christ but Herod and Caesar,
The cruel and bloody victories of Caesar?
Violence, the bloody sire of all the world’s values.
Never weep, let them play,
Old violence is not too old to beget new values.
–Robinson Jeffers

New to the world of blogging, I have always been fascinated by the scientific endeavor and I read about or engage with those processes as much as possible. I am a compulsive reader and writer (predominately non-fiction and scholarly work) With a background in anthropology and as an arm-chair/backyard scientist, I hope to improve my writing skills and learn about any areas of weakness or misunderstanding in my analytic skills. I want to improve and am particularly interested in science blogging and creating science content as a freelancer. I work for a wonderful company procuring high asset/risk insurance coverage for niche businesses and professionals, not fitting typical underwriting models as a day job. I am excited to share my journey through scientific discussion, essays, how to's, technical papers, creative non-fiction, with some free verse prose thrown in for my own fun. Thank you for spending time here. Please reach out if you are so inclined. I'd be excited to hear from you.

One thought on “Let Them Play”

  1. Oh I just love Helen as allegory for a modern woman/spirit/godess. As I woman I know the struggle for finding metempirical role models. Eve and Lilth are awe inspiring but cliche in this epoch. Helen is the female Parsifal/Parzifal. But this time she, as the green knight, hopes or perhaps cannot consent to travel the path alone. I have no provisions but an open face and great sense of humor. Seems like more than enough, but only time will tell.

    Sorry for rambling. What I mean to say is thank you for making and so glad you shared.
