I've been singleminded lately, and it's all about the laboratories and research and the nature of creative discovery. I've either been reading, or searching for things to read, or sitting around wondering what keywords would help me find more reading. One thing is really nice, and that is the computerized databases of all this stuff that make finding things and then requesting copies so much easier. It means that instead of having ten books on my desk at this point, I have closer to fifty. Of course, it also means I have to read those fifty, take notes on them, make bibliographies, and give them back in a much more compressed timeline.
Here's what I look at when I look up from my pile of books. Spooky, isn't it?
