This website is dedicated to lovers of literature and poetry, to lovers of science, to lovers of
nature, and to lovers pure and simple. Over the years I have spent countless hours in the pursuit
of the beauty of love and the beauty of nature as it unfolds to us in the world of science. I have
tried to capture the wonders of life as they manifest themselves in our emotions and our intellect.
You will find here not only love poetry but issues on pharmacology and medicine as well
as my thoughts about and translations of Nguyen Du, a poet who dominates Vietnamese
classical literature for all time. More to come in the days ahead. Keep coming back to visit
this site, made for all of us regardless of background of any kind, for you will find yourself here
and the rest of us in a common bond of humanity.
All introductory material referring to me in the third person was authored by Professor
Thomas D. Le, whose website has hosted my
home page during a period of transition, a gracious gesture for which I am indebted to him. I
keep the introductions as he had written them as a token of my appreciation.
I hope you will find on this site moments of joy and happiness that we all cherish in the
midst of a humdrum life.
