List one or more things that make you happy. "raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens"... biology labs. clean rooms. the interface between meticulous lab, filthy biological field workers' boots, and bioinformaticians clicking away at their keyboards. baby kisses baby giggles toddler cuddles sloppily written letters toys that unintentionally look like microscopic organisms - like this ball my girls play with that reminds me of a pollen grain. A husband who finds a way to say "I love you" when I'm making his life more challenging.
