Fretted

A dancing string is a strummed and fretted wire

Upon which I perform my own tightwire act.

Balance aloft on shakey footing.

There is no safety net should the string snap.

Freefalling into sound endlessly, a runaway elevator in an interminable shaft.

Heaven is in the drone of sounds in stereo

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.

  1. writtencasey: i’m sure that you are aware of the genius of Vivian Stanshall (his Bonzo Dog Band endeavours, yes. But also his ‘quintessentially British’ [© D period Ball] & unbeatable ‘Sir Henry at Rawlinson’s End’ radio series from oh-way-back-when-you-were-just-a twinkie [sic]-in-a-eye). Of his passing in 1995, the poet Roger McGough wrote ‘[Vivian] walked life’s tightrope with the safety net nailed firmly to the floor.’ – thus proving at once that poetry & genius & the appreciation of, is a deft & death defying act. Lovely work, as always. nickreeves.
