After 35 years of public health research, I’ve retired from science to paint and write in Portland Maine. Although no longer doing science, I’m still exploring ideas, experimenting, and learning. During the exploring part I get lost from time to time. This used to make me nervous, but with age I’ve found that the more I wander, the more I  learn.
