I was honored to be invited to speak at the Great Books Council conference in Asilomar in April this year. What an experience! It's like being at a really fun book club meeting all weekend. I highly recommend going to one of their events. Check out: ​http://www.greatbooks-sf.com

Possibly the slowest runner in the history of the marathon, but by god I did it. If you're going to run a marathon, this is the one to do. You get to run through all five boroughs of New York City, and the streets are packed with cheering people.

I had the honor of being invited to give a talk at the 2015 CREST-Jane Goodall Science Symposium at the West Linn-Wilsonville School district in Oregon in February. The teachers and students there are amazing!

I actually ran a marathon. And survived.Wow! Here are me and my friends Kurt and Karen at the finish, hobbling towards the camera. Here I am with my dad, who was there to greet me with warm clothes and a huge smile!

Alas, Prop 8 passed. Not sure if my marriage is still valid and how to deal with my taxes this year. However, at least we got the "secret book" on marriage, so everything will be okay.

​I never thought I would be officially married, but now I am - at least, until Nov 4.

Here we are in the marriage license office with the requisite bored government official (ho-hum, another gay marriage), and there we are saying our vows. I do!
