Letting our multitudes sing
Somewhere along the lines, I never quite decided who I want to be when I grow up. Sure, I’m an academic scientist. But at various times and places I’m also a writer, a voice actress, a public speaker, a programmer, and even a barn hand. Amanda Palmer sings that we are all bigger on the inside and that truth resonates a low base note in my soul. Bob Dylan’s voice catches as he says he (and we) contain multitudes and their diverse voices lead me in every direction. My body may only be able to do one thing in this moment, but over a lifetime we can do and be so much more than what any one moment can contain.
