Ken Knowlton says that he's "been there, done that": he has been a farmhand, student, teacher, advisor, speaker, reader, mathematician, physicist, electron microscopist, computer scientist, chimes player, mountain climber, researcher, inventor, author, artist, critic, son, sibling, father, husband, grandfather, peace and civil rights activist, agnostic, retiree, liberal, cynic and realistic pessimist.
Retired from scientific/technical agitation, he is trying to spend the final quarter of his life doing no harm: writing essays and memoirs, and using his own computer-assisted methods for planning his artwork, most of which are mosaic portraits.
