One if these things is not like the others...

Like the old song from Sesame Street, "One of these things isn't the same..."

Over the past 6 months I've been fortunate to meet up with many graduate school and post doc friends. People with whom I'd shared the best and the worst of times in the research trenches. We will forever share the educational distinction of, PhD. But after that it changes, for they all go by Dr., professionally. And then they all take it a bit further by having even more letters after their name such as CEO, CSO, VP, Pres, Director.

Still, I ponder the road not taken.

Explorers have always taken the path less traveled, or the path yet to be traveled.

There is no mystery in the beaten path. Discovery is rare as well.

We are all led down our own paths for a very specific reason. Sometimes it is obvious to everyone but ourselves what that reason really is.
