Dunlop, thanks for the note. I could and might write a little book about all of this. The basic lesson I learned is that for all of the theory, strategy, great holes, classical principles stuff, the basic process of design and build is guided by problem solving and puzzling through small solutions that work in a larger, coherent framework. Most of what passes for criticism overlooks this. I know as a result I've become a better writer. We'll see if it helps in other areas as well.
