“Every word was once an animal”-Emerson by way of Marcus

My WordPress theme is Swiss Magazine, which makes me feel hungry and sophisticated at the same time. My address is dot org because the dot com belongs to a realtor and I guess it also works since my current writing life, the writing life in general, is a not-for-profit venture. Teaching too. I am genetically predisposed to this (being granddaughter to farmers, teachers and journalists, daughter of nurse and social worker).

Anyway, it’s probably all passe to write a mission statement for blogs anymore. Still it seems weird just to start plopping down posts. So: Herein I begin a blog that will be equal parts self-aggrandizement (publications, updates and whatnot) and general curiosities (most likely literary in nature).
