I Am Here, Maximum Loading Level

Camera: Leica M9
Exposure: 1/60
Aperture: f/16
Focal Length: 50mm
ISO: 800

I am here… at the maximum loading level for the next month. Grant submission time is always incredibly stressful, and I wish there were a better way to do science… but barring setting up a privately funded research institute, this is it.

I still maintain that publicly funded science is the healthiest way for a society to push itself forward. It is the best way to fund science, and ensure an egalitarian distribution of taxpayer dollars.  I do wish however, that I could spend more time on the actual science, than so many cycles writing, and administering grants.  I just don’t know any other way that could possibly happen.
