Newly retired college professor, based in the Bay Area, California. I attempt… I try to write poetry, some fiction, a lot of personal history, and the usual ponderings and commentary rants. I also take photographs and sometimes work with photoshop just a little…okay, a lot, so much so that no original pixels are left. I also design in vector, some 3D. At one point, the only media that I laid claim to was sculpture. I like carving stone, no grinders, no power chisels, just using hand tools. Now, I’m getting to like working steel and knife making, maybe a little leatherwork. I keep busy.

I’ve been told this blog is huge. An eclectic collection of thoughts, images… some useful, some not. In some sense I’m building a virtual representation of who I am. Or who I would like to be? I should be more careful to edit the dreck. Then again, the dreck is the contrast necessary to shine light on the good! Really?

So, this blog is documenting an eclectic life, with eclectic interests.
