Laid off from seasonal factory cog work at L.L. Bean, I'm devoting my 100 percent of my time to my son and to writing.
I produce feature copy for a highbrow glossy real estate shopper called OpenFences, and am picking away at My Mother's Recipe Box, a project/paper meant to get me to the last stage of a ridiculously protracted master's degree in American and New England Studies.
Though I used to teach English, dance, and social studies in public high schools, my intolerance for the current Maine Department of Education's policies has made seeking teaching work complicated.
On this blog, sometimes I write about high quality education, food, safe homes and workplaces, and reliable health care for all. Other times I don't.
