Yes, I have spent my entire career at the University of Michigan. I was doing fine until the Chair moved me upstairs to take on a few administrative duties. I enjoyed being upstairs but most days I felt useless and stopped enjoying work. I had an office across from my wife and next to friend from years ago.

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
History of Wolverine Lake Village Michigan.
A guide to discrete geometry and the computer applications that loved them.

My next book was to be a collection of very short stories I have written since high school. I found over 100 in boxes, on old discs and in the deep crevices of my oldest hard drive. I don't feel like reading them again and I know I will want to rewrite most and I know I should never do that.
Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...
It should be of interest to absolutely no one other than family members and friends. It was a labor of love.
This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
If this book becomes addictive to someone you care about, please get them some help.
