Good fortune allowed me to have a career in solar research. With the aid of many generous and gifted colleagues, I have tried to learn more about the Sun's magnetic and velocity fields through observation and instrumentation development. These interests captured me early and remain strong. In this memoir I describe my path through 60 years of solar research that was sometimes random but did not deviate much from my core interests. The chromospheric magnetic field and helioseismology have been especially intriguing and frequently rewarding topics.
