This is my personal site, which means it’s where I express interests not pertaining to my work, but that’s tough because work and life aren’t opposite categories, and you can already probably tell I tend to get abstract quickly and lost in tangents. I like to watch boxing. I love to play soccer. I think it’s a mistake to consider surfing a sport (or dancing for that matter). And so on. I have lots of interests–criminal justice, gardening, Zen, ecology, music. I think my favorite piece of fiction is Michael Kohlhaas by von Kleist: dense, fast, historical, mystically religious, always relevant. I often ponder that book, but my favorite book seems to change with the times, as I myself am changing. Dom Casmurro by Joaquim Maria Machado de Assis seems particularly worthy at the moment.
