Current Projects

Reading Halldor Laxness’ big, beautiful novel of Iceland, Independent People. You wouldn’t think that a bleak landscape, cold weather, a stubborn sheep farmer and lots of sheep would make for great literature. But Laxness blends them all together with a finely-honed sense of humor and pathos.

Memorable Moment

Being taken on a gallop by a runaway horse in Pereira, Columbia. I couldn't remember the Spanish word for "Whoa!" Everyone else along on the trail ride thought it was hilarious.
