This page is the place for a short biography. Perhaps I’ll write one. Although truth be told, I’m not that interesting. This will take a while for me to get around to….Perhaps very long. I’m not sure how long, But here… is the place-holder; also its menu. This might be a job for a better salesman. Such as my sweetheart. If I can talk her into doing it!
I’m not sure I can do justice to the subject. Hopefully she’ll help.
Edit: Round and about Christmas 2012.
I thought adding an anecdote or two, as has my dear wife, down below, might be a fine way of writing a biography of oneself. Everyone, I think, has anecdotes sometimes embarrassing, sometimes humorous, or even perplexing, among other things, to relate about their lives. These little mile stones may go quite far as to allowing someone a window into ones soul. So what follows is one of those:
As a callow youth in my first year of University, a freshman–and in fact there are two similar such anecdotes which occurred within a few months of each other
I remember speaking to my Calculus professor about how excited I was that all of my teachers seemed to hold Doctorate degrees in the subjects they were teaching. Being a man of some honour and honesty, my professor informed me, and I am paraphrasing here:
“Well… I don’t actually have a doctorate in mathematics.”
“Oh,” I said, I thought naturally he might have a physics or other degree in the sciences perhaps.
At any rate, he continued by remarking: “I am finishing a doctorate in mathematics though, currently I have a masters degree.”
“But then,” I asked “It says ‘Dr. Wossname’ on the syllabus, though.”
To which he replied. “I have a Doctorate degree in teaching.”
“But…” I replied, speechless at first, “But…” I tried again, still unable to hide my surprise. “But… that’s nothing!!“
This, I think will give you a window into what, at least as a youth, I thought about the humanities, in general, or the so called ‘soft’ subjects. Just a bunch of people pointlessly pushing words about, and patting each other on the back, even though none of them knew how to actually do anything. (such as build a bridge, for example, or design a rocket engine.)
