Law Clerk on Gilligan's Island


Square Droppings

Wombat, at rest

In September 1998, I quit my job at a big law firm to go work as a clerk to the Supreme Court of the tiny South Pacific island nation of Palau.


Read true stories from my travels in my Palau diary.

Take the web's only virtual tour of the Republic of Palau.

Be enlightened by  words of wisdom from the Palau Treasury.

And, of course, I've got links for people wanting real information about Palau

Fun fact: wombats leave square droppings. Really. Well, cubes actually.  Next time you're stuck for chitchat at a cocktail party, mention that.


Brief screeds on whatever happens to be stuck in my craw right now. Could be fiction, essays, opinion, or other frivolous langiappe.  You won't know unless you go.

Every second of our time on Earth is precious.  But since you seem predisposed to fritter away your life, you might as well do it somewhere interesting.
