"Research is formalized curiosity. It is poking and prying with a purpose. It is a seeking that he who wishes may know the cosmic secrets of the world and that they dwell therein."
Zora Neale Hurston
Yesterday in the shadow of Washington's sentinel mountain University of Washington's Anthropology Archaeology students proceeded to receive their hard earned honors. And my middle daughter was one of them.
Ten years ago she was paralyzed. Today she walked on stage to receive her much earned diploma in Archaeology. For she and all the graduates, the world is open for their taking. A future filled with unlimited possibilities awaits.
Success will come to those who think!

An interesting aspect of this graduating class was the high percentage of women. Phd: 11 women, 1 man. Masters: 7 women, 3 men. Undergraduates for 2015 Anthropology Archaeology: Out of about 400 men and women, less that 15% were men.

Use your education to make a difference in the world!
