Create your own visited map of The United States or another interesting projectIntensely liberal, I champion the underdog, the despised victims of the greater society: all those who face discrimination ... racial "minorities", gay people, immigrants, the poor, infants subjected to genital mutilation (whether male or female), people who dissent, slaves (more today than ever in history). A vegetarian, I feel deeply for the suffering of the millions of animals, butchered for the delectation of the uncouth: those people who demonstrate no sympathy for the suffering of other living beings.

Über meine BibliothekAll listed books, but one, are in my possession and on my shelves. My collection is somewhat eclectic, but it is heavily weighted towards history and architecture, plus the arts in general, including photography.

Beginning at age 12-13, I discovered the work and philosophy of architect Frank Lloyd Wright, and my book collection began in high school, when I acquired several of his works. Today I'm honoured to have books autographed by Wright and by Mrs. Wright, too. However, my collection is reflective of my intense interest in and thirst for the whole of life: from politics to glacial geology, geography, and history. The work of artists, architects, writers, musicians and composers thrills me to the core of my being. I value the books, prints, photographs, and those few paintings in my library over almost anything else in my life.

Religion is such a personal thing, that it puzzles me to find people attempting to fit their life and the lives of others into books that are thousands of year's old, books which have been constantly amended by individuals with a particular agenda, and then translated and retranslated until no one knows for certain what the original said, or what the authors really meant. And yet I find it intensely interesting to research the subject, as an aid in discovering clues which might shed light on subsequent events.
