I’m a Magpie
or something like that.
So, I know it’ll be hard for you all, as accustomed as you’ve become to fresh! daily! content, but I’m leaving tomorrow to go home for two weeks in sunny Massachusetts.
And it’s my dog Merlin’s 14th birthday tomorrow! Happy birthday, Merls-a-pup.
I was fourteen myself when we first brought him home (and if I recall I was much more limber).
I'm a librarian. Special skills include dog charming, brochure writing, slapdash cooking and long-winded nattering. I also enjoy watching the sunset's reflection in the tall buildings downtown.
For a while there, I taught classes on Classical literature, philosophy, and the history of religion at New College of California. I have an MA and an MFA in Writing, and live on a boat in Sausalito, CA.
