|On the various pages of the site I have included some
personal stories about my work. I think that in a way they
are more informative than the dry biography that follows.
But I have been told that my site should have a short
biography and a list or works and a C.V. chronologically
arranged. So these pages are on the site. I would not
spend too much time on them.
