Getting back to work

I spent most of this weekend working on Isaac’s biography:

– I interviewed Stephen Abbott, an old friend of Isaac’s from Berkeley.

– I sent out messages to a couple of other folks I want to want to interview, to (re-)establish a connection.

– I wrote to Michael Lloyd, author of Bull of Heaven, to ask another biographer how he approached the kinds of problems I’ve encountered. (Quick review: read this book. I’ll have more to say in a later post.)

– I spent several (aching) hours coding more of Isaac’s old documents. I’ve barely made a dent, but with enough visits eventually the bird’s beak will wear down the mountain.

I can’t give the project this kind of attention every weekend. It did show me that, with persistence, I can get this done.
