Sweat Your Body, Sweat Your Brain and Have Fun Writing

Have you ever undertaken a work that, when you finished it, it brought you great satisfaction? I mean really great satisfaction? Perhaps you planted a garden, crocheted a quilt, built an outbuilding, crafted a work of art, bred an orchid... Well these works combine physical effort, mental effort, and great skill. They stand out. They command notice.

Well I write the occasional science piece. I enjoy teaching. I enjoy pushing my thinking abilities. And I've enjoyed that in my latest Decoded Science piece, entitled

Saccharides: Difference Between Starches, Sugars and Cellulose.

The concepts were hard, yet stimulating.

But what brought me the greatest joy was producing images that were clear, not complicated beyond what was needed, and colorful to boot, using the simple tool MS-Paint. Yes, that old turkey. Hey, it flaps its wings for me!

Check it out, even if you don't particularly enjoy chemistry. Won't you?

Yes, I have done a few things that were tough and brought me satisfaction. For me, the births of my 2nd and 3rd children are included. The birth of my first child was horrendous for me. With the 2nd and 3rd, I worked hard to learn exercises and techniques that made their births a satisfaction and even, for the third, a pleasure!

I'll have to try that sometime... Ok, Ok, not particularly funny... Men are told passing kidney stones are reminiscent of childbirth. Since I don't have those, and I'm not female, I guess I've avoided some pretty serious pain.

I certainly don't fancy trying kidney stones!
