Despite the allure of Audrey Hepburn wearing a Coco Chanel little black dress, a simplistic world where everything is in black and white doesn’t excite me. In a way, I see everything in shades of maroon and gray. Those are the colors of my alma mater, McMaster University in Canada, where I first learned about the never-ending complexities of the behavior of everyday matter when studied at the atomic level.

Even if they're not particularly religious, many freshman chemistry students will say a prayer before taking their fall semester final exam, usually just before Christmas. It might go something like this: Please, God, give me strength to get through this, even though I haven't slept, or eaten much lately. Help me to know the difference between right and wrong (answers). If they happen to be taking a night class, their prayer will coincide with the Office of vespers, or the evening prayers, at the nearest cathedral or monastery.
