Traveling the British Empire

Posted October 26, 2010 By Richard Leo

Not so long ago, in terms of the history of the planet a mere nanosecond, the sun didn’t set on the British Empire . That such a small island could dominate so much of the globe was a testament to the tenacity and ferocious ambition of the British people and their leaders.

It is, however, still possible to traverse great parts of the globe without leaving what is now or once was British … Read the rest

SF Breath

Posted February 18, 2010 By Richard Leo

It’s been a dream to set foot in San Francisco for most of my life.  I understand that growing up in the NorthWest means that I’ve had ample opportunities all my life, too, but I never felt I had the right to act on any of these.  Things always got in the way.  There were work schedules to juggle, and then a kid, and somewhere in between there were all these other travels to Mexico.  Scholarly work dominated the days for many, many years, and it just didn’t make sense to pop in on the city by the bay, and … Read the rest
