Short term goals

Fifty years is a long time so short term goals are also good. Publishing in an academic peer review journal is a goal for several of the topics I’ve been working on, even if only to submit for more feedback. Studying more to improve my writing skills and understanding of neurology was a goal I mentioned earlier this summer and I exceeded my plan. I had signed up for three courses on a MOOC site called and enjoyed them so much I ended up completing several more and one offered through one of the United Nations education website on sustainable water management. Links to those educational sites and others are available in the first two Frequently Asked Questions here:

Reviewing chemistry, math, microbiology, and physics is another goal – in order to better understand the science of water which is shared in exquisite detail here:

*I’m jumping ahead and just reading the site that way I will better know what to pay attention to in reviewing the other science topics as needed. I’ve also found another site regarding known and theoretical information about quantum biology – quantum physics of our cells. This is a new field of study. (

From the site Water Structure and Science by Martin Chaplin, BSc PhD CChem FRSC,

‘Wisdom delights in water.’ – 
           Confucius (Analects VI.21)

Exquisite might seem an odd word to use about the chemistry of water however the site includes more detail about water in one place and in such detail, with clear explanations (similar reading level to the New York Times) of the complex detail – that exquisite is the best word. Water supports our lives internally and externally. It is a treasure of exquisite value.

One unexpected advantage of taking all the courses was in seeing all the educational styles and formats. It was very inspirational as well as educational and led to the new website, . It celebrates water and community. It is a preliminary step towards making a more user friendly interactive education site for promoting lifestyle and community changes that support healthy individuals and ecosystems.

Peace is a glass of fresh cool water on a hot day.
