This site has two main purposes. One is to share some of the ideas and resources that I have come to believe—after more than a half-century of experience—are of lasting significance, or provocative, or at least entertaining. The other is to serve as an arena for exploring some of those ideas with others. Most pages begin with an image, usually a piece of art. In my mind there is a connection between the art and the content, perhaps not logical or direct, but at least engaging. Visitors to the site are encouraged to challenge the relevance of the art and suggest better candidates.
SE>encore consists of four parts: encore, perspectives, a library, and an art gallery. Each includes several components, which may be accessed below and in the Directory. Any comments or suggestions regarding SE>encore will be welcome. My address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
