Writing a bio

Click here to learn more than anyone would ever care to know about me. You know, I’ve tried, but I think I despair of ever achieving that balance of bravado, humility, gravitas, and laconic squinting-into-the-distance-with-a-leathery-façade-over-an-obvious-to-everyone-but-me-aching vulnerability that is essential to the successful bio. Maybe I try too hard.

And we all know what Yoda said about try, don’t we.*

He really meant it, too, because he sighs and his ears lower like they do when he really, really means something. Like when he’s about to have a lightsaber fight. Or move a spaceship with his mind. Or take a nap. But he was being tough on Luke, don’t you think?, because the kid was so darned vulnerable right then, I mean, c’mon, he was opening his heart to Yoda.

No, you’re right, he was pretty much just whining.

If you’ve actually read this far, then you might as well click here. That will tell you about the picture in the masthead, and hardly anything at all about me… well, some things, but you’ll have to read between the lines, what with my leathery façade and all.

*OK, maybe we don’t. “Do or do not. There is no try.” My daughters like to hear me say that in Yoda’s voice. Well, they used to.
