2) Slide 2: Work and Hobbies

My Favorite Things
I've done research in Prediction Protein Structures from
amino acid sequences (1970-1980). Turned my love to
poetry. The two disciplines are connected. Proteins are
the language of life. Poetry is the language of the human
heart. My web site shares this vision,
bringing cosmic awareness to everyday life.

Teaching poetry to kids

Sharing wisdom (Tour);

When pandemic ends, love to—
Go ballroom dancing at Cubberley Pavilion,
See classic films at Stanford Theatre,
Breakfast and movies with friends.

3) Slide 3: Learned during the pandemic—

Alone But Not Lonely

A friend asks if I'm lonely
sheltered-at-home, nowhere to go—
computer labs and libraries closed
in this coronavirus pandemic.

Seeing sages serene and still
even amidst lots of action,
I try to be likewise— alone
but not lonely in these times.

No television, computer,
cell-phone, credit card, or a car,
yet I'm happy without these toys
to keep me busy and content.

KDFC's classical music
lifts up my spirit, Renoir's paintings—
a visual delight, poems by Rilke
and Rumi— always nourishing.

My mind takes flight while reading
Ramana's Talks, PB's Notebooks,
Ficino's Letters on the Soul and
Joseph Campbell's Power of Myth.

Emails from world's foremost futurist,
greetings from Dalai Lama's best friend,
new paintings from best graphic artist,
essays from a happiness mentor,

surprise emails from long-lost friends
that we are all linked together
like Net of Indra in our flight
from alone to the Alone.

The ocean's horizon shows luminous light.
Spring is coming and the future is bright.
