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.
