Our dad is an extraordinary father and human being and was always fascinated by the brain. When we were young, he would entertain us and our classmates by bringing a human brain in a white bucket of formaldehyde to our elementary school during show and tell. His brilliance and curiousity informs how he has lead his life. In the backyard, instead of a swing set, he built a stained-glass geodesic dome with a hot tub in the middle.
Dinner conversations typically span from the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle, to politics, literature to a hilarious joke. When we were young, he would diagram the operations he did that day on a napkin; later, his diagrams became more adventuresome and expanded to thought experiments including what it would be like to sit astride a beam of light and how that corresponded with Picasso’s rose period, blue period and cubism. Soon his first book, “Art and Physics” was born and the rest is history. He loves to tell stories and loves to hear them. Reading yours will put a real smile on his face!
