Whole Earth



I just revisited my copy of the Whole Earth Catalog. I always find it enlightening and genuine in spirit. Where is the 2009 iteration/compilation? or is there?

I gave a talk tonight in front of a crowd. I've been so anxious but it's over!

pre-office cleanout!





I share an office with five others——lots of accumulation and layering occurs in a schoolyear (Booo, I'm the main culprit for the mass paper heaps). This is the time to cleanout, but first a break is necessary.
