A wide range of things interest me. A generalist at heart, I am curious about so much of the world around us. John Muir said “When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.” One line of inquiry inevitably leads to another, and another… I’ll pursue one interest with enthusiasm and passion for a while, and then set it down and chase something else for a while. However, I will return to that first interest with a fresh vigor at some point.

They say that a jack-of-all-trades is master of none. I understand that I will never plumb the depths of a given field the way a disciplined specialist might.

However, as Lois Farrow (Ellen Burstyn) says to Darcy (Cybil Shepard) in The Last Picture Show:

“Just remember, beautiful, everything gets old if you do it often enough.:”

I'm a graphic artist in the movie business. When I was a kid I got interested in astronomy. When it would get too cloudy to observe the heavens, my buddy and I would sit at the VFO of his Hallicrafters S 38c like safe crackers trying to coax faraway signals out of that humble radio. My love of astronomy and radio survive to this day fifty+ years later.
