It is amazing to me how I seem to discover the right book at just the time that I am ready for it. (I have also felt that way about music and art, discovering new sounds and sights in a seemingly purposeful progression….)

Each of these books and the knowledge found in them represents to me a piece of the puzzle, a grand mosaic picture which becomes more detailed as I grow older. In areas where a larger mosaic stone did fine a decade ago, I have since found the need to replace this one stone with several small ones – creating more detail…..

Of course there are many areas of my personal picture, my universe which are still quite hazy and which I would like to fill in over the next decades, but I assume that will come in time….I know that I owe so much to books and their authors…and the musicians and painters and so on…..Well hey! Thanks!
