Mission Statement

or something

Once upon a time there was a huge, chaotic world. It was full of people who didn't understand each other, all rocketing around and colliding, clumps bursting apart and reforming.

Once (upon a time) I wrote that my abiding question is, "How and why do people organize themselves in the way that they do?"

I was right — that is my abiding question. No matter how much I figure out, ample mystery remains. I'll never stop being fascinated by human nature. Fellow man puzzles and obsesses me.
