About meI'm a former teacher of sorts who used to work about 10-20 hours a week. Now, sadly, I am a government lawyer and have significantly less (fun) reading time. I am neither Australian, contrary to the Platypus in my name, nor a tapir, contrary to the photo. I do like both. I used to read a lot. Someday, I will again.

About my libraryIn the last two years, I've lived in Bangkok, Thailand, Hollywood, CA, Long Beach, CA, Astoria, NY (that's NYC for you non-locals), and San Francisco, CA. Thus, my library has been whittled down to a more portable size, often against my wishes. Still, tally ho, and keep a stiff upper lip and all that. That's what public libraries are for, and someday my library, like the temple, will be rebuilt.
