My Latest Writing

Lately, I've been writing two things. The first is a book about my friend Spox, who is a young dragon. It's practically the first nonfiction I've written (not counting journals, and essays for class). The second thing I've been working on is an opera based on The Hobbit. My brother Rafie is the composer (ie, the music guy), I'm the librettist (ie, the writer), and my other brother Solomon is the dramaturg (ie, the person who makes sure all the facts are right, although if the script is based on a Tolkien story, it means the person who makes sure it's true to the spirit of the book). Sometimes I just write out the book's dialogue as a script, sometimes I write bits that aren't in the book.

Nixon in China

I saw Nixon in China recently. My favorite aria from it was "I am the Wife of Mao Tse-tung", and the singer was amazing. She wowed me so much that I wanted to show this video to you people.
