I have been playing around with the SHOP making new designs with proteins and a bit of sense of humour… not sure all of them are fun, let me know!! http://gre47.redbubble.com/
Creativity is also creating.. here some snaps of the SHOP, hope you like it 🙂
BOOK on the way
Busy times over there… the poems have been now collected into a book and the cover is almost finished.
Get ready to snoop into it soon. Will it be a single huge book or a collection of 6 episodes?
What would you prefer?
Keep in touch 🙂
You have just landed on a website fruit of an experiment starting in science and finishing with poetry.
In 2016, I was running between the lab an the office, writing articles and coaching students. What a stressful life is the one of a scientist in academia! I am not alone saying this and the choir is crowded (ref. X, Y, Z). Thankfully there are many ways you can handle stress, once you recognise it.
One way to fight stress is poetry. Writing and reading poetry has ben proven to be more mindful and certainly makes you feel better. Studies has shown these positive effects (ref. A, B, C). I started posting short writing images of nature daily to this blog, that has become like a diary. Most of the writings will soon be included in a book while photos are all still available for you to enjoy. This activity has stimulated my creativity as you can see here, here, here, and here.
If you want to start writing and mentally escape the lab too, but don’t know where to start, check this strategy. I hope you’ll want to keep in touch and please leave me a message to share experiences an collaborate!
