Hi Judy, Thanks for friending me on fb and for following me on Twitter. I'm curious: did you find me through She Writes? or maybe my writer friend Liane? (Or maybe O magazine or Marie Claire who recommended my memoir fathermothergod in their August issues?) I see that you have written for the Boston Globe, which means maybe you are from the Boston area... which makes me somewhat suspicious because that is where the Mother Church (headquarters of the Christian Science Church) is. But I also see that you write for the Jewish Advocate and Jerusalem Report which is reassuring! I'm curious, if you wouldn't mind sharing. Best regards, Lucia Greenhouse
