Art Exhibit

My friend Peter Vanderwarker’s works are included in the Industrial Strength exhibit showing through April 13 at the Addison Gallery of American Art, Phillips Academy, Andover. (Peter shot the photo postcards in my office window.) The exhibit is reviewed in today’s Boston Globe (“No one documented the Big Dig more scrupulously or vividly than Peter Vanderwarker, and the Addison has nearly two dozen of those photographs on display.”) The exhibit is worth figuring out how to get to Andover.

Law School Decision Flowchart

Created by attorney Samuel Browning, based on Paul Campos’s book Don’t Go to Law School (Unless) (Amazon), and published initially on Matt Leichter’s Law School Tuition Bubble blog–this flowchart is the best one-stop presentation I’ve seen on the topic. It is must reading for every student considering whether to attend law school, and more efficient than locating and digesting my many blog posts over the years on the same topic. A discussion yesterday with a current student with a recent interest in law prompted me to break my half-year blog-posting sabbatical.

Summer Sunset

Weather in Maine (and everywhere) has been steamy. The sun bakes the air, the hot air rises, then cools, the cool air falls to the earth, the wind blows like crazy. Follow with a thunderstorm, clouds, and the calm that descends over the lake in the evening and you have the elements for a dramatic sunset.

Adirondack Chair

This spring I built an Adirondack chair, based on a template I created from a chair given to use by one of the builders of our house in Maine. Talking about this with a few people I learned that some don’t know what an Adirondack chair looks like, or don’t know it by that name. So here it is, already a bit dirty:

To Friends Everywhere

Thank you for your calls, emails, texts, and other messages to inquire about our safety. We watched the Marathon from home and, like you, watched the terrible events on television. We are just beginning to grasp the toll on our various communities–friends, neighbors, students, colleagues. It’s a beautiful sunny spring day overhung with horror, sadness, loss, anxiety, and the incomprehensibility of it all. Your concern provided comfort beyond measure.
