Sobre mimLawyer and artist -- mobiles, photographs, an occasional painted window.

Recent project: Editing the photos and journal of my China trip. Most frustrating ongoing project: So-far-unsuccessfully trying to photograph in two dimensions the fluid spatial and formal relationships in my favorite, fourteen-element mobile, "Complex Composition."

The photograph is with a class of students I met in the Virupaksha Temple in Hampi, India in 2003, a country rich in several millennia of overlaying cultures. For photos and mobiles go to lightspacemobiles.com and lightspacephotos.com

Sobre a minha bibliotecaI have been addicted to books and used book stores since age fourteen. I seek no cure. My favorite: The full-sized, thirteen-volume hardbound Oxford English Dictionary, 1937 edition, acquired in 1971 while programming computers for a living. I love the English Language. My most hard-won skill: writing. (I was not a very good programmer.)

Based on the number of rereadings, my favorite books are Ursula LeGuin's "The Dispossessed" and Mark Helprin's "Winter's Tale" and "Refiner's Fire," and Alan Lightman's "Einstein's Dreams." Others are the dark, murky World War II espionage novels by Alan Furst, especially "Dark Star" and "Night Soldiers." My favorite in college and for a decade thereafter was "Catch 22," still the funniest book I have read and, as later experience demonstrated, the best guide to bureaucracy.

My favorite writer's style manual has always been the highly compressed, one-paragraph to one-page stories in Hemingway's second book, "In Our Time." He demonstrated that the more tightly compressed the thoughts and the more tangible the images, the more powerful their impact.

Re the arts, note the varied books tagged "studio."
