In light of my day job, I have this fantasy that in my spare time I could be a writer. So I started this blog to write little essays on issues, frequently with a personal twist. It has been fun but I have not really been able to build a particularly large readership. I do very much appreciate those who do read what I write. I would love to have more people to appreciate.

Writing is simultaneously an act of precise use of words and the use of smoke and mirrors to create an impression. I would love to be able to give up my Catholic school girl need to be pristine and submerge myself in the mud bath of elegant, if not always accurate, expression. Readers, are you listening? It's me, Margaret.
