Occasionally, I'm a bit of a klutz. Like yesterday-I was sitting in a meeting at a conference table. I shifted a bit, caught my dress hem under the wheel of the chair and, worried that it might pull my whole dress down, tried to correct the situation and instead had the chair roll out from under me, planting my behind squarely on the floor next to my colleagues. I mean, who falls out of a chair they've been sitting in for 20 minutes already? Yep, that would be me. (Feel free to laugh-I did).
Honestly, I like to think I have good balance. I've always been a great ice skater, I'm fast on rollerblades, I ride a bike often, I can still do a mean cartwheel and I'm not completely horrible at sports. But sometimes I have problems with the basics-like walking, or sitting in a chair apparently.
I have tripped on air in the office hallway. I have fallen up and down the stairs. I've taken a tumble out the front door of my building in front of a large group of students (who added insult to injury by jumping to help but called me ma'am). My husband remembers introducing me to a law school classmate years ago and I shook his hand and then somehow fell down for no reason-great first impression. I've inadvertently flashed motorists on Grand River stumbling on the curb so that the wind caught my wrap dress just right.
As a German-American who works at MSU on an experiment located in Switzerland and France, I have always been attracted to the globe-spanning internationality of particle physics.

After day of anticipation, it finally happened. My weekend consisted of eight-counts and pivots, leaps and hip swings, all colliding and melting into the beat of a Bollywood hit.
