Having my hands in the lush dark earth nearly my whole life and gardening for three  decades  in our small  suburban garden has helped me to stay focused on life and its mysteries and offers many hours of introspection.

My  hunger for academic opportunities is being nourished in mid-life.  New discoveries are on my horizon,  and I look forward to what lies ahead with excitement and pleasure.

In the everyday world, I am a fourth-generation manufacturer of decorative brass stampings for the costume jewelry and related arts trades.

      Thank you for your very kind words, Ned. I’m glad you liked it. I don’t post as often as I would like to but there’s usually something simmering on the back burner of my brain, and as soon as it takes form, it ends up here.
