I am a new WordPress user, aspiring artist and critic, family archivist, and besotted Grandma.

This is my student web site but it will evolve into a platform for my little lectures, recipes and other bits of advice for myself and anyone who cares to tune in, and a place where my art can be seen.It will also include an archive of family documents which may eventually be spun off into a separate web site.

Comments are disabled for the time being, but my goal is to make my web site a place for civil conversation about a variety of topics, including the English language itself.
