A Topic Tree
I write about whatever catches my interest. As a result, the essays on this web site range all over the map. I've separated them into several broad categories:
The two categories Ideas and Personal have accumulated a lot of essays, perhaps too many to browse. (In the previous iteration of this web site, there were rather large buttons at the top of each page, giving links to all the other essays in that category. One had to scroll down a long way just to find the beginning of the essay. By moving all those links to the left side and eliminating the buttons, I hope I've helped my reader begin reading much more easily.)
In addition, I have created this "Topic Tree" of the essays in those two categories, providing what I hope is a more useful tool for browsing a particular topic. Because many essays could easily be assigned to more than one topic, their links are repeated wherever they seem to fit.
The major category pages list essays mostly in chronological order by date of posting, and give brief introductions to each topic. the "Up" link on each page takes you to the major category page. This page retains that chronological arrangement (more or less), with later essays at the top..
Each title is a link; click on it to go to that essay.
If, after selecting a topic from this (Topic Tree) page, you want to return to this page, use your Back button instead of the links list.
I'd welcome suggestions and comments about this page.
