BoBI Retreat at the MFAH's Bayou Bend, Saturday May 9 Was Great Fun!

Posted on May 14, 2015

For the seventh consecutive year, BoBI members met for a great day of research, talks and poster presentations. BoBI faculty, Postdoctoral researchers, Graduate and Undergraduate students told us about their research. The summer fellowship recipients were honored, and poster awards were won by one First place, one Second places and one Third places winners. Congratulations to all!

Every poster presenter was asked to introduce her/his poster with either one slide and a 1 minute “ad”, or to create a Haiku describing the project. That was great fun. Below you can read the Haikus - enjoy!

The ocean is quiet except on the shore. Aphrodite rose from foam waves on the shore. Land arbiter to her soliloquy hums a solace tune. His wing generates the melody. His muscle directs the wing. His mind controls the muscle. Where is his mind for the music? Where do the internal drive and the external trace combine?

Deep well of water
Dries all up in the sunshine
After a while
