Yvonne and I have moved to the beautiful mountains of North Carolina, north of Asheville. I continue to do research, to write on subjects that interest me, and at the moment to work with graduate students as well. I plan to stay involved in the energy that is academic life for the near future. I welcome your interaction with me on your ideas or mine.
