Who am I?


“A good traveler has no fixed plans, and is not intent on arriving.” – Lao Tzu

The road trip is supposed to be just as much fun as when you actually get there.  So whether it's walking to campus or flying to Berlin, I try to take in & enjoy whatever happens on the way, too.

“When the winds of change blow, some people build walls and others build windmills.” – Chinese proverb

The genius of Dutch engineering, and how they harnessed the atmosphere to strengthen their society, should be one of the wonders of the scientific world.  I suppose, in the current condition of America, the proverb above has become a political statement, too.

"And now, dear Lord, I cannot wait, Because I have a luncheon date." – John Betjeman

I go out to lunch. A lot. That's all I was aiming for with this quote.  :)  Oh, and I think St. Pancras Station is one of the most beautiful, romantic places in Europe.  The Meeting Place statue in the background suggests I'm not the only one.
