I live here, on the western end of San Francisco, where the Pacific Ocean borders North America. From my yard I watch the container ships come in from Shanghai, and the airliners on their way to Seoul. It’s sort of a metaphor for my area of interest, where Asia meets America. (I didn’t plan it that way, but I am glad it worked out that way.)

I like big tanks and I can not lie. You other brothers can’t deny.
