About me

Location United States
Introduction I have a "dog's eye view" of the world as I rely on the eyes and intelligence of my guide dog to lead me through the chaos of my life. I have two Physics degrees, and a great love of astronomy (despite my inability to look up at the night sky and see anything but darkness). Other loves include reading, Scrabble, crochet, music, writing, and perhaps most of all photography.

You're going to the moon! What did you forget to pack?

Nothing. If I ever got a real opportunity to go to the Moon, I would be well prepared to go (been waiting for that opportunity for my whole life).
