I can hear the birds singing from my office. My colleague & I try to spot birds and name them - though I suck at it. When she lived in San Francisco she worked for the Audubon Society and was a bird counter, so she's very good. I am looking forward to taking my brisk walk at lunch time and I wore my bright yellow lightweight jacket in honor of what appears to be a Spring day. Finally.
I have had a rough work week (so far) and received 2 rejections on 2 grant proposals I have submitted. This morning I decided I'd spend part of the day finding new funders to submit what I think is a crucial study on the brain mechanisms of rhythm perception. We have seen proof that music can have a positive effect on movement disorders and understanding how that happens would shed new light on how to treat Parkinson's and brain injury due to strokes or accidents. Forward ho!
